certain peoples within or without the British Commonwealth of Nations

AND WHEREAS the Freedoms expressed in the Atlantic Charter included
the freedom of religious worship;
AND WHEREAS from the foregoing preambles Chapter 172 of the Laws

called ChristianPilgrims;
AND WHEREAS a total revision of our &ws Is long overdue, in keeping

Department to ignore chattels and' moveable effects of defaulters which

REGISTRAR GENERAL'S OFFICE,
25th September, 1954.
Sir, *
I have the honour to submit for the information of His Excellency the
Acting Governor my report on the Vital Statistics of the Colony for the
year 1953.
I. POPULATION.
On the 31st December 1952, the population was estimated at 71,392. The
births and deaths registered during 1953 numbered 3,069 and 1,127 respec-
tively showing a natural increase of 1,942 but emigration exceeded immigra-
tion by 202 leaving a net increase of 1,740. The estimated population on the
31st December 1953 was therefore 73,132 comprising 34,548 males and 38,584
females.
Inquiries have from time to time been made concerning the population
of Kingstown and the country districts and I am adding for the first time
the following table which shows the population of Kingstown and the country
districts as ascertained by the Census taken for the year 1946 and estimated
at 31st December 1953. The figures are estimated by taking the 1946 Census
figures for each division and adding thereto the proportionate increase.
This method is necessarily imperfect as it assumes that the total increase
in the population is proportionately distributed. It is however the best that
can be done as there are no records available for internal movement of the
population and the Registers of Births and Deaths contain no information
which would enable me to correct births and deaths at Hospitals and Public
Institutions to usual place of residence.
Census Estimated
1946 31st Dec., 1953
Kingstown ...... 4,833 5,764
Kingstown Suburbs
Sion Hill to Clare Valley ...... 9,933 11,814

II. MEAN POPULATION.
The mean population on which rates of Births, Deaths and Marriages have
been calcullated and which is arrived at by taking the mean figures for the
year under review and previous year is 72,260.

III. RE-REGISTRATION OF BIRTHS UNDER THE LEGITIMATION ORDINANCE
1930, No. 5.
The number of registered births of persons legitimate under the Legiti-
mation Ordinance No. 5 of 1930 by the subsequent marriage of their parents
was 4. In 1952 the number was 19.

IV. DIVORCES.
According to figures obtained from the Records of the Supreme Court
the number of Decrees absolute of Divorces granted by the St. Vincent Circuit
of the Court was 3 as compared with 2 during the preceding year.

V. MARRIAGES.
The number of marriages registered was 220 or 5 more than in 1952. The
average age of all male marrying was 35.9 and that of females marrying 29.0.
Table 11 shows marriages in terms of relative ages of persons marrying.

VI. TOTAL BIRTHS.
