    Total fertility rate may rise as more wed in 2012

    Singapore's total fertility rate grew for the second consecutive year to 1.29, with some 38,641 resident live births last year. The number of babies born last year hit an 11-year high and population experts said this could be due to the auspicious dragon zodiac sign. With more marriages recorded last year, some experts believe that the total fertility rate this year could improve.
