A data frame with 1034 observations on the following 4 variables.

TimeID

TDate

Equal to TLabel if it is a single year, or the starting year of TLabel, if it is an interval.

Details

For 5-year period data, fertility rates are defined from 1 July of year (t) to 1 July of year (t+5), with 1 January of year (t+3) as exact mid-date. This means for example that data for 2000-2005, refer to the period between 2000.5 and 2005.5, with 2003.0 as exact mid-point.
