According to the most recent National Family Health Survey (NFHS). Which is conduct by the Union Ministry of Health and Family Welfare and will publish in December 2020. The Total Fertility Rate (TFR) in most Indian states has decreased over the previous five years, according to her statement.
“It is often defined as the average number of children born to a woman by the time she reaches the end of her reproductive years. At which point she is considered to have reached the end of her reproductive ability. The replacement rate is obtain by dividing the total replacement rate by two, which yields the replacement rate. As a consequence, if the fertility rate is less than 2.1, the total population will be less than the current population. Which is refer to as being a “negative growth rate.” If the fertility rate is more than 2.1. The total population would be more than the current population.” Sharma started his own position.
