According to the in-depth analysis of the 2019 Population and Housing Census, the fertility in Vietnam has almost halved over the last 30 years. The total fertility rate (TFR) declined from 3.80 children per woman in 1989 to 2.09 children per woman in 2019. Vietnam has maintained a stable replacement level fertility for more than a decade, and the practice of having two children remains a prevalent trend. These results once again affirmed that Vietnam has successfully implemented the Population and Family Planning Program with the aim of reducing fertility.

At present, the fertility in rural areas is higher than the replacement level and higher than that in urban areas. The TFR is 2.26 children per woman in rural areas and 1.83 children per woman in urban areas. The highest fertility rates in Vietnam are in the Northern Midlands and Mountains and the Central Highlands, two regions with TFRs of 2.43 children per woman. The lowest fertility rates in Vietnam are in the Southeast and the Mekong River Delta, with TFRs of 1.56 children per woman and 1.8 children per woman, respectively./.
