Description

Excerpt from Thirty-Sixth Report to the Legislature of Massachusetts Relating to the Registry and Return of Births, Marriages, and Deaths in the Commonwealth: For the Year Ending December 31, 1877 The birth-rate for the year 1877 is less than that of any of the past twenty-five, except 1865, the last year of the civil war, during which latter period the number and the rate of births were considerably lessened for reasons readily recognized. The diminution for which the present year is remarkable is not so readily accounted for: many births escape registration; but the error from this source is probably constant, and is no greater in 1877 than in 1867: that the financial disturbances of the present period have some effect in reducing the birth-rate is not unlikely. The following table, copied from the Thirty-ninth Annual Report of the registrar-general of England, shows the birth rate in several European countries, and places our Massachusetts statistics of births at a manifest disadvantage. France has often been alluded to in the writings of statisticians as affording in her birth-rate the ground for much solicitude as to the future of her population; and the apparent birth-rate of Massachusetts since 1875 is less than that of France.
