Trends in Canadian family size : a preliminary report.: CS98-1941M-12E-PDF

"In view of the substantial decline in birth rates during the depression, as show by Vital Statistics, it was decided that at the Decennial Census of 1941 the phenomena of declining fertility should be more carefully examined than ever before. Accordingly, new questions were introduced into the Census questionnaires to be asked of all women who, at the Census date, either were or had been married, viz., (1) age at first marriage; (b) total children born alive to this mother; (c) number of these children living at the Census date. Generally satisfactory and consistent answers to these questions were obtained from Canadian women. These answers have been duly compiled and tabulated and then exhaustively studied and analyzed. The preliminary results of this investigation are presented in this publication"--Pref., p. [1]
