Economic differences in family size, Canada 1941: CS98-1941M-7E-PDF

"This bulletin continues the study of human fertility in Canada and is part of a series in which for bulletins have been published. The investigation has been based upon statistics collected for the first time in Canada at the Decennial Census of 1941, when the following questions were asked of all women who at the date of the Census, either were or had been married: (a) age at first marriage; (b) number of children born alive to the mother; (c) number of these children living at the date of the Census. Like Bulletin F-2, the present report is based on an intensive study of statistical data concerning women between the ages of 45 and 54. The earlier report analyzed family size in relation to birthplace, religion, mother-tongue, years of schooling and place of residence. The analysis is now extended by taking into consideration information about occupation, earnings, and value of home"--Pref., p. [1]
