Marital fertility rates can be computed either as age-specific levels or for the entire spectrum of reproductive age groups (15 to 49 or 15 to 44). The percentage is the number of women in the stated age range who are actually married; the fraction is often understood to represent the entire number of births to women in the provided age range, independent of the mother's marriage status. The validity of marital fertility rates may be substantially impaired due to the significant rise in conception beyond the legally recognized marriage that has taken place in many developed nations (with many babies happening in consensual unions or to cohabiting couples).
