Materials and methods. Used information resources of official statistics. As a research method accepted index theory. In addition, used a secondary analysis of sociological data.
Results. Methodology operational diagnosis of the situation with fertility. Set the direction of increasing the birth rate.
Conclusions. Found that the focus of increasing the birth rate should be in the direction of increasing age fertility rates. The direction of increasing fertility associated with redistribution of births in different age and gender groups, is less of a priority. The existing support system fertility does not provide a breakthrough in the field of indigenous enhance reproduction.
