The fertility rate in Brazil, which has remained relatively stable in the past few years, is expected to drop slightly over the next decades, down from 1.77 children per woman to 1.66 children by 2060.

Brazilians’ life expectancy is currently 72.7 years for men and 79.8 years for women, and is projected to rise to 77.9 years for men and 84.2 years for women by 2060.
