REGISTRAR GENERAL'S OFFICE,
llth January, 1957.


Sir,

I have the honour to submit this Report on the Population and Vital Statistics
of St. Vincent for the year 1956.

2. Since the completely revised Report (1952) was presented there has been
a sustained effort to accumulate, tabulate, compile, analyse and disseminate all
available data of value. Much has already been achieved under trying conditions
and there is much more to be attempted as the necessary facilities are made
available.

3. I wish to acknowledge the valuable advice and assistance received from
Mr. G. W. Roberts, the Vital Statistics Adviser to the Comptroller for Development
and Welfare in the West Indies who paid us a visit in July, 1956.


I. POPULATION.

4. St. Vincent's population at the 31st December, 1955 was estimated at
76,778 as compared with 75,200 for 1954 and 61,647 at the Census of the 9th April,
1946.

5. There was a net increase of 1,578 during the year under review which
was due to a natural increase of 2,505 registered births over deaths, less an adverse
migration balance of 927.

6. The population comprised of 36,558 males and 40,220 females. The pro-
portion of males per 1,000 females was 908.8 while the natural increase for males
exceeded that for females by 125.

7. A detailed study of the population increases in the several age groups
over the past three years is possible from Table 1, but the significance of this
growth since 1946 can be assessed from a study of the four ,broad age groups:
0-4 years representing children under school age; 5-19 representing children
of school age; 20-59 years representing the working age population; and 60
years and over representing persons past working age.

Age Group 1946 1955

0- 4 9,640 13,090
5-19 24,390 28,050
20-59 24,830 29,960
60+ 4,190 4.680

63,050 76,780


8. The population of Kingstown and other major districts is set out in the
Table below. As there is no record of migration within the Colony these figures
are necessarily difficult to ascertain.
District. Census 1946 1955
Kingstown ...... ..... ...... ...... ... 4.833 6,338
