### Describe in Detail

Compute GFR, SFR, TFR and GRR from the data given below:

Age groups of child bearing females | Number of women (’000) | Total births |

15 - 19 | 16.0 | 260 |

20 - 24 | 16.4 | 2244 |

25 - 29 | 15.8 | 1894 |

30 - 34 | 15.2 | 1320 |

35 - 39 | 14.8 | 916 |

40 - 44 | 15.0 | 280 |

45 - 49 | 14.5 | 145 |

Assume that the proportion of female births is 46.2 percent.

### Explanation

First write the formula of GFR, SFR, TFR and GRR is
