Definition - What does Natality mean?

Natality is the birth rate within a population. When compared with the death or mortality rate, the growth or decrease in a population can be determined.

Safeopedia explains Natality

The natality rate can be expressed as the number of births per 1,000 individuals in a population. Absolute natality indicates how many births there could potentially be in ideal circumstances, while realized natality reflects the amount of births that take place when environmental pressures are taken into account. Natality data for the US can be obtained from the CDC.
