In the period 1991-2011 there were significant changes in marital status, educational level and fertility of women in the Czech Republic. Their age at marriage increased and more of them remained unmarried. At the same time, the proportion of women with higher education increased. Fertility fell, moved to a higher age, and the number of children born out of wedlock rose. This article presents an analysis of the fertility of women by age, marital status and educational attainment based on specific census data.
