The Cohort Fertility and Education Database (CFE) provides aggregate data on completed cohort fertility and parity distribution by level of education. The data are freely accessible to all interested users and focus on women and men past prime reproductive years who have completed or almost completed their family building. When available, also historical data from 20th century censuses, focusing on the cohorts born since the late 19th century, are included. The data come from censuses and large sample surveys, and cover countries with generally high levels of education and relatively low fertility.
