A It is a measure of fertility
B It is actually a ratio
C It is independent of the age structure of the population
D Numerator does not include still births

Ans. C It is independent of the age structure of the population

CBR is a measure of fertility which is independent of the age structure of the population as it includes the entire mid - year population in the denominator.

GFR is a better measure of fertility than crude birth rate because the denominator is restricted to the number of women in the reproductive age group rather than the whole population. All the other options regarding crude BR are correct.

Other important indicators of fertility include:

i. General marital fertility rate

ii. Gross reproduction rate

iii. Total fertility rate

iv. Age specific fertility rate

v. Net reproduction rate
