Fertility projections of Registered Indians, 1982 to 1996: R5-356/1985E-PDF

"The registered Indian population has entered the demographic transition, moving from a traditionally high to a moderately low fertility typical of modern society. Within less than two decades, its fertility halved, reaching about 3.2 births per woman in 1981. In recent years, a marked convergence between Indian and overall Canadian fertility has been observed. However, the fertility level of registered Indians is still twice as high as that of the Canadian population at large. The Indian current demographic transition has not yet run its course and there is a potential for a further fertility decrease before the overall Canadian level is reached."--Summary.
