The '''child-woman ratio''' of a population is defined as the number of children under age 5 per 1,000 women ages 15-44 or 15-49 in a population in a given year. This crude fertility measure, based on basic [[census]] data, is sometimes used when more specific [[fertility]]-related information is not available.
