The Ukraine is the second most populous republic in the Soviet Union. With more than 47 million inhabitants, it is one of the most important nations of Europe being only slightly smaller in size to France, Italy, or the United Kingdom, all of which having approximately 57 million inhabitants. Yet very little has been written about the Ukrainian population and its history. Possibly this is due, in part, to the difficulty in obtaining data.

This paper attempts to fill the substantial gaps in the time series of Ukrainian fertility especially in the 19308 and 1940s by converting the period information into cohort data, applying model fertility schedules and reconverting them into period data. The result is a complete record of Ukrainian fertility since 1925.
