Fertility and Marriage *


The number of births registered during 1952 was

2,091 as compared with 1,965 in 1951. Male births amounted

to 1,052 and female births to 1,039, the resulting sex

ratio being 1012.5 as compared with 978.9 in 1951.

Illegitimate births numbered 1,358 and the illegitimacy

rate stood at 64.9 or slightly lower than the figure of

the preceding year (67.7). The birth rate of 37.0 was the

highest recorded during the post censal period.

Still-births registered during the year 1952 were 66.

Legitimate males 11, legitimate females 10; illegitimate

males 20, illegitimate females 25 the rate being 4.60

the highest recorded during the post censal period.

There were 214 marriages during the year as

compared with 251 in 1951. This Report includes two new

tables on marriage Table 9 and Table 10. From the former

it is seen that the average age of all males marrying was

34.5 years and the average age of all females marrying
was 30.9.

There -rere no divorces granted in 1952.


Mortal ty


The number of deaths registered (1,108) was

considerably higher than that of the preoBning year (874)

and was.in fact higher than in any post censal year.

The death rate (19.6) v.as also higher than in any ar
since 1946. As a result of the larger number of infant

deaths (320) the infant mortality rate reached the very

high level of 153.0.

this report is based are annexed hereto,

26th August, 1953.
Annual. Report of the Registrar
General's Department,1952


The Annual Report on the Vital Statistics for 1952

appears in a completely revised form and includes several

new tables.

Population

This Report gives for the first time annual estimates

of the population by age groups. These are based on the
age distribution of the 1946 census and on subsequent births,

deaths and migration. These estimates for 1948-52 are
shown in Table 1.

The population at the end of 1952 stood at 57,017,

which represents an increase of 1,103 over the population
at the end of 1951. Natural increase during 1951 amounted

to 983 and net immigration to 120. The principal changes

in four broad age groups of the population that have taken

place sinae 1946 are of interest and can be summarised as
follows:-

Age group 1946 1952 % Increase
0 6,700 7,770 16.0
5 19 16,740 18,180 8.6
20 59 22,500 26,970 19.9
60+ 3,550 4,100 15.5


Total 49,490

The increase was thus

20-59 and lowest (9c) in the


57,020 15.2

highest (20%)in the age group

group aged 5-19.
