Estimates of Vital Rates for the Canadian Indian, 1960-1970. Statistics Canada.
Piche, Victor; George, M. V.
Vital rate estimates for Canadian Registered Indians were presented in this paper. The population under age one in a particular year becomes the population one year old the following year. When this information was examined for 10 years, it was found that there was an increase in survivors from year to year, and that there were inconsistencies ascribed to the late registration of Indian births. It was further found that in 1970, the Indian population was increasing at a rate of approximately 3%. Suggestions for further research included using data on age patterns of fertility, age at marriage, illegitimacy rates, birth intervals, and family planning. (PS)
