The D0-14/D ratio: A new paleodemographic index and equation for estimating total fertility rates

McFadden, Clare; Oxenham, Marc


The objectives of this study were to develop a new subadult–adult ratio for application to sites with good infant representation and to produce an equation to estimate the total fertility rate for a population based on the age‐at‐death ratio. A new approach is required as current methods exclude the 0–4 years age category due to presumed underenumeration of infants. While this is true for some skeletal samples, others experience good infant representation.
