Print version

Among 21,111 children born in 2013, the most boys were named Luka and the most girls were named Sara.

3.8% less live births than a year before

In 2013, in Slovenia 21,111 children were born (10,804 boys and 10,307 girls), or 827 (3.8%) less than a year before. For the last time, the number of live births decreased to such an extent in 2001. The value of the basic indicator of fertility, which shows an average number of live births per 1,000 population, decreased in 2013 by 0.4, i.e. to 10.3. In comparison with the previous year the total fertility rate fell also; for 2013 it was 1.55.

The trend towards postponing motherhood has not stopped yet in Slovenia; the mean age of a mother at first birth was the highest after World War II with 29 years and increased by 0.1 year compared to a year before. The mean age of a mother at all births (regardless of the birth order) was 30.5 years and remained the same compared to the previous year.

The most fertile group in 2013 were – as in the last few years – women aged 25-29 years (on average 108 children per 1,000 women), followed by women aged 30-34 years (104 children). Compared to a year before, in these two groups fertility decreased. A slight increase was registered among women aged 20-24 (44 children per 1,000 women) and reached the value of 10 years ago. Almost as many children were born to women aged 35–39.

Again more babies than in 2012, and the most until now, were born to unmarried mothers, i.e. 12,237 (58%).

For the 15th consecutive year the most newborn boys were named Luka. The most newborn girls were named Sara – in the last 19 years this name has been among the top 5 names, but has never ranked to be the most popular name.

Another year of natural increase

In Slovenia in 2013, a natural increase was recorded for the eighth consecutive year, when 1,777 people more were born than died. Natural increase per 1,000 population was 0.9; thus its value decreased for the third consecutive year.
Data on natural increase by municipalities and regions are published on the SI-STAT Data Portal.
