INTRODUCTION
This is the Eighty-first Report of the Vital Statistics of British Columbia, covering
the period from January 1st to December 31st, 1952.
The Report is divided into three parts. Part I presents, in summary form, the
pertinent vital-statistics data of the Province for the current year, together with comparative figures for earlier years. Brief narrative comments have been made as a guide
to the more important features of the statistics, and graphs have been included to assist
the reader in following time trends. Once again considerable care should be exercised
when studying those mortality tables which include statistics for the years prior to 1950.
It was in this year that a major change in the death-classification system took place, with
the implementation of the Sixth Revision of the International Statistical Classification of
the World Health Organization. As a result, not only were there amendments within
the International Statistical Classification of Diseases, Injuries, and Causes of Death,
but also the method of selecting the underlying cause of death in a joint-cause sequence
was changed. Previously the underlying cause was determined by the application of
arbitrary rules of selection, whereas under the new procedure the certifying physician's
preference is accepted.
It should be noted that birth, death, and stillbirth statistics for 1944 and later years
have been tabulated by place of residence, whereas prior to 1944 the practice had been
to present the data on the basis of place of occurrence. The method of having tabulations based on place of residence is generally found more useful, but it is important to
be aware of the change-over when comparing statistics relating to periods before and
after January 1st, 1944.
Part II presents a descriptive summary of the activities carried on in performance
of the registration and statistical functions of the Division. This summary reveals that
the volume of registration reached a new high in 1951 and that more certificates were
issued than ever before. In addition, further developments with respect to the production of public health statistics are recorded.
Part III of the Report contains a series of detailed tables covering the births, deaths,
marriages, adoptions, and divorces which occurred during 1952. A separate set of tables
deals with the Indian population of the Province.
A major change has been made in the format of this section of the Report, not only
in the layout of the tables, but also in the data given. The new arrangement is the result
of a thorough review of the annual tabulation programme for Canadian vital statistics
which was undertaken by the Vital Statistics Council for Canada in co-operation with the
Dominion Bureau of Statistics. An explanation of the change is given on page 64 of the
Report.
An Appendix has been added to this year's Report listing the causes of death by sex
and age according to the Detailed List of the International Statistical Classification.
Mortality tables elsewhere in the Report are generally classified according to the Intermediate List only.

PART I.—GENERAL STATISTICAL SUMMARY
BY PLACE OF RESIDENCE
W 13
POPULATION SUMMARY
The population in the Province in 1952 was estimated by the Dominion Bureau of
Statistics to be 1,198,000, an increase of 32,970 over the population at the Census in
1951. Since 1921 the population in the Province has more than doubled, and almost
half of this increase has occurred during the last ten years.
Certain features of the age structure of the population were reviewed in last year's
Report. Additional releases from the 1951 Census have cast further light on the composition of the population. It is revealed that British Columbia maintains a rather
unique position in the nation's population picture with regard to the marital status of
its inhabitants. Married persons account for 50 per cent of the total population, the
single-status group for 44 per cent, the remainder falling into the widowed and divorced
categories. By comparison, only 45 per cent of the total Canadian population is married,
while, on the other hand, 50 per cent is classified as single.
Almost one-quarter of the nation's divorced persons are shown to reside in this most
westerly Province. This group is, on the average, three times greater in its proportion
to the total population of the Province than is the case for the other Provinces of Canada.
The percentage of widowed persons in the population is practically the same
throughout Canada, being 5 per cent of the total population.
It is interesting to note that in 1951 the married group comprised a larger proportion of the population in both British Columbia and Canada than was the case a decade
ago.
Although the percentage of males has remained in approximately the same proportion in Canada between census years—namely, 51 per cent—in this Province it has
decreased from 53 per cent in 1941 to 51 per cent in 1951. W 14

SUMMARY OF BIRTHS, DEATHS, AND MARRIAGES
IN BRITISH COLUMBIA
The number of births occurring in 1952 increased by 1,750 from last year's figure
to reach a total of 29,827. This was the greatest increase since 1947. The birth rate also
increased, being 24.9 this year, compared to 24.1 in 1951, and was exceeded only by the
rate of 25.2 for 1947. Despite this near-record birth rate during 1952, British Columbia
still has the lowest birth rate of any Province in Canada, as has been the case for three
years.   The rate for Canada as a whole was 27.9.
The mortality rate in 1952 increased slightly to 10.1 from the 1951 figure of 10.0.
Deaths increased by 442, compared to the increase of 57 from 1950 to 1951. During
the last thirteen years the death rate has fluctuated within quite narrow bounds, except
for 1943, when a rate of 11.1 was recorded.   However, the number of deaths has VITAL STATISTICS REPORT, 1952
W 15
increased by over 45 per cent in the same interval, reflecting the extent to which the
population has increased. The death rate for the Province is above the rate of 8.9 for
Canada as a whole. This is due to the fact that the Province has a higher proportion of
older people. Over 15 per cent of the population in British Columbia is over 60 years
of age, compared with only 11.3 per cent for all Canada.
The number of marriages solemnized during 1952 was the lowest in seven years,
191 below the figure for 1951. Thus, the decline begun in 1947 and interrupted in 1951
was continued. The rate also dropped, being 9.2 per 1,000 population, compared to 9.7
in 1951. This was the lowest rate recorded since 1944. However, this Province's marriage rate for 1952 was third highest in Canada, ranking behind Alberta's rate of 9.8 and
Ontario's rate of 9.5.

BIRTHS, DEATHS, AND MARRIAGES
For the fourth consecutive year the excess of male births over female births has
increased. In 1949 this excess was 4.6 per cent, and in 1952 it had risen to 6.9 per cent.
Among the population excluding Indians, the corresponding figure for 1949 was 4.3
and for 1952, 7.5.
Male deaths exceeded female deaths by 60.5 per cent this year, whereas in 1951
they were 69 per cent higher. The mortality rate for males was 12.1 per 1,000 population and that for females 7.9. In the non-Indian population there were 63.9 per cent
more male deaths than female deaths in 1952 and 72.6 per cent in 1951. The mortality
rates for the non-Indian population were 12.0 for males and 7.7 for females.

BIRTHS AND DEATHS AMONG THE INDIAN AND
NON-INDIAN POPULATION
Table 4 shows the numbers and rates of births and deaths among the Indian and
non-Indian populations of the Province. It reveals the large difference which exists
between the experience of the two groups with regard to the two types of events. For
births in 1952, the rate per 1,000 persons in the Indian group is more than double that
for the non-Indians, and when deaths are considered, the Indian rate this year is 80 per
cent higher than that for the other-than-Indian population. To a great extent the high
Indian mortality rate is a result of the excessive number of infant deaths which occur.
When the death rate for those over 1 year is computed, the population excluding Indians
shows a rate of 9.3 per 1,000 while the rate for Indians only is 11.5. The comparable
rates for the group under 1 year of age are 0.5 per 1,000 population and 6.4.
It may be noted that as the Indians make up only a small part of the total population
(less than 2.5 per cent), their exclusion in computing the birth and death rates for the
Province does not markedly affect these rates. The birth rate drops from 24.9 per 1,000
in the total population to 24.2 for the population excluding Indians, the comparable
rates for deaths being 10.1 and 9.9.

NATURAL INCREASE
There was an increase in the excess of births over deaths this year, there having
been 17,747 more births than deaths in 1952, as compared to 16,439 in 1951. The
rate of natural increase was 14.8 per 1,000 population, slightly below the 1947 record
of 15.0 per 1,000 population.
As a result of the low birth rate and high death rate in the Province as compared
with the rest of Canada, it is not surprising that the natural increase is lowest in Canada,
the National average being 19.2.

ILLEGITIMATE BIRTHS
The number of illegitimate births increased by 14 per cent, from 1,633 in 1951 to
1,857 in 1952. This resulted in the highest rate yet recorded; namely, 62.3 per 1,000
live births. The rate for Canada as a whole was 37.4. When Indians are excluded, the
Provincial rate drops to 48.6.

BIRTHS AND DEATHS IN INSTITUTIONS
The increase which has been registered for a number of years in the proportion of
births occurring in an institution was continued this year. Fully 97.5 per cent of all
births took place in an institution, and thus there were only 759 births in the Province
which occurred outside of hospital. In the non-Indian population the proportion of births
which occurred in hospital was even higher, being 99.1 per cent.
In 1950, the most recent year for which final figures for Canada are available, British
Columbia had the highest proportion of infants born in hospital in the whole of Canada,
being ahead of Alberta, the Province with the next highest.
More deaths occurred in hospital this year than ever before. The proportion of all
deaths this represented was 63.5 per cent, which was also a record. In 1950 Saskatchewan and Alberta had higher proportions of deaths occurring in institutions than British
Columbia, the figures being 67.7 and 61.2 per cent respectively.

AGE AND SEX MORTALITY
Table 8 shows the number of deaths by age and sex for the years 1921, 1931, 1941,
and 1948 to 1952. Table 9 shows the specific rates of mortality which prevailed during
these years, the figures having been derived by dividing the number of deaths in each of
the various age-sex categories by the population in the category and expressing the result
in terms of 1,000 population. Thus the effect of the different-sized populations in the
various age-groups is removed. As a result, the rates are useful in indicating the changing
force of mortality over the period of years covered, and also in making possible a comparison of the mortality risk as it affects the two sexes and the various age-groups.
There has been little change in the total death rate in British Columbia over the
past ten years. The crude death rate of 10.1 per 1,000 population in 1952 was almost
identical to the figure of 10.2 recorded in 1942. Although this is not a great decrease,
upon closer examination of the conditions under which such deaths took place it actually
represents a much more dramatic improvement in the mortality experience of the population. During this ten-year period the number of older persons in the Province had been
increasing faster than the total population. This ageing of the population tends to result
in a higher death rate, since the specific death rate of the older ages is naturally very high.
For example, while the over-all death rate in 1952 was only 10.1 per 1,000 population,
the group 60 years of age and over had a specific rate of 42.9. In other words, there
were 42.9 deaths for every 1,000 persons in the population 60 years of age and over.
This group, with its relatively high death rate, has increased in numbers by 64 per cent VITAL STATISTICS REPORT,  1952
W 21
in the past ten years, whereas the total population has increased only 42 per cent. The
effect on the death rate of this increasing proportion of older persons can be demonstrated by computing what the over-all death rate would have been in 1952 if the population had been in the same proportions in each age-group as it was in 1942. Under such
conditions there would have been only 9,946 deaths in 1952, but actually 12,080 deaths
did occur. Thus the crude death rate would have been only 8.5 per 1,000 population,
when, in fact, it was 10.2, as previously stated. The difference in the rate between 8.5
and 10.2 was due solely to the ageing of the population and had nothing to do with any
change in the health status of the people. In fact, had it not been for the remarkable
improvements made in the death rate at virtually all ages during the past decade, the
over-all death rate in 1952 would have been 11.3 per 1,000 population instead of the
10.2 rate actually recorded. For example, the death rate in the population under 60
years was 4.3 ten years ago, whereas it was only 3.9 per 1,000 population in 1952.
The usual pattern of mortality in both the male and female population exhibited by
the age-specific death rates was maintained this year; namely, a very high rate during the
first year of life, followed by a sharp decline in the 1-4 age-group, a further, but slight,
decline in the 5-9 group to the lowest mortality rate existing at any age, then there is a
slight increase in the rate which becomes more marked after age 39. In each age-group
except the last, male mortality exceeds that for females, both in number and rate, and
even for the 90-and-over group the female rate is only slightly higher than that for males.
It will be noted that the number of deaths per 1,000 population for the group under
1 year of age has been diminished by more than 50 per cent for the males and 45 per
cent for females since 1921. Substantial improvements in the mortality rates have also
been registered in each age-group to 49 for both sexes. The risk of mortality for males
in the four age-groups 50 to 59, 60 to 69, 70 to 79, and 90 and over is slightly less
favourable in 1952 than in 1921, but as the rates for these groups have been quite variable during the period being considered, no significance can be placed in this change.
Moderate reductions occurred in the female mortality rate at ages up to 90, although over
that age the rate for 1952 is considerably less favourable than it was in 1921.

PRINCIPAL CAUSATIVE FACTORS OF MORTALITY IN
BRITISH COLUMBIA
Any consideration of causes of death over a period of time which extends back
beyond the year 1950 should make allowance for the fact that in 1950 there was a change
of some importance in the method of assigning code numbers to causes of death, as well
as a change in the code itself. In 1950 the Sixth Revision of the International Statistical
Classification of Diseases, Injuries, and Causes of Death came into use, superseding the
Fifth Revision. This had led to certain marked changes in the numbers of deaths charged
to some causes, which changes reflect mainly the new coding procedure rather than real
changes in the risk of dying from the causes named. For example, considerably more
deaths are now charged to vascular lesions than formerly, while fewer deaths are ascribed
to nephritis and diabetes. However, in spite of the comparability difficulties which
resulted, the adoption of the Sixth Revision was highly desirable, since it enabled current
cause of death statistics to more closely reflect the true state of mortality.
Since 1946 there has been a steady increase in the proportion which deaths from
diseases of the heart represent in relation to deaths from all causes. The figure for 1952
was 36.2 per cent, as compared with 35.3 per cent for 1951. Deaths from malignant
neoplasms also made up a greater part of total mortality than previously—15.7 per cent
of all deaths. The third of the major groups of degenerative diseases, vascular lesions of
the central nervous system, resulted in 9.6 per cent of all deaths, and together the three
categories accounted for 61.5 per cent, or over three-fifths of all deaths. In Canada as
a whole 57.6 per cent of all deaths are so caused. The combined rate of deaths from
these three categories of degenerative disease was 620.0 per 100,000 population in the
Province during 1952, and 503.7 in Canada. In British Columbia 15.5 per cent of the
population is 60 years of age and older, while in Canada only 11.3 per cent of the
population is over 60. Since this is the time of life when the degenerative diseases take
their greatest toll, it is not surprising that these diseases should show a higher rate in this
Province. However, a consideration of the specific death rates for the age-group 60 to
69, 70 to 79, and 80 and over in 1950, the most recent year for which comparable figures
are available for Canada, shows a slightly more favourable rate in British Columbia for
all but the latter group. The death rate for the Province in the 60-69 age-group is 1,851 VITAL STATISTICS REPORT,  1952
W 23
per 100,000 population; for the 70-79 group, 4,092; and for the 80-and-over group,
10,691.  The comparable rates for Canada are 1,896, 4,321, and 10,146 respectively.
Accidents as a cause of death continue in fourth place, following the degenerative
diseases mentioned previously. There was little change in the number of deaths from this
cause in 1952 as compared to 1951. In British Columbia, accidents caused 7.9 per cent
of all deaths, compared to 6.8 per cent in all Canada. The rate for this Province was
80.1, which is considerably higher than the National rate of 59.3.
The rate of deaths from diseases of early infancy increased slightly this year to 38.5
per 100,000 population from last year's rate of 36.8. This is a lower rate than that for
any other Province in Canada, except Prince Edward Island, and well below the rate for
all Canada.
Pneumonia this year caused slightly fewer deaths than in 1951, and the rate was
down to 36.4 per 100,000. This is a higher rate than exists in most other Provinces, but
in making comparisons the higher proportion of Indians in British Columbia must be
considered, as this group is particularly susceptible to the respiratory diseases. When
Indians are excluded, the rate drops to 30.6.
The mortality from diseases of the arteries ranked next to pneumonia, but with a
rate of only 19.0 per 100,000 population. Tuberculosis followed closely with a rate of
17.9. Deaths from tuberculosis declined more than 26 per cent from 1951 to 1952, to
continue the rapid reduction it has experienced in recent years. Deaths from suicide in
the Province were slightly above the figure for 1951, and the rate rose to 15.2. This is
more than twice as high as the National rate of 7.3 and well above the rate for any other
Province.
Congenital malformations caused 174 deaths in 1953, a rate of 14.5. This is the
second lowest rate in Canada, the rate for Saskatchewan being 12.7. The National rate
is 18.2. W 24

THE FOUR CHIEF CAUSES OF DEATH IN THE
DIFFERENT AGE-GROUPS
Tables 11a and 11b show the four most important causes of death in each of the
various age-groups according to the following categories: The number of deaths in
the age-groups resulting from the principal causes shown, the preceding as a per cent of
all deaths in the age-group, the age-cause-specific rate of deaths per 100,000 population,
and the number of deaths which occurred at all ages from the specified causes.
In the group under 1 year of age, premature birth caused the greatest proportion
of deaths—almost 20 per cent of all mortality among infants. Congenital malformations
caused another 16 per cent of the deaths. The four principal causes shown together
resulted in almost 70 per cent of the mortality among those under 1 year. When Indians
are excluded, pneumonia does not appear in the first four causes of infant deaths.
In the age-groups from 1 to 39 years, accidents were the leading cause of death and
claimed 38.8 per cent of all lives lost in these groups during the year, an increase over
1951, when 37 per cent of the deaths among those 1 to 39 years were so caused.
Malignant neoplasms was the only other cause that appeared in each of the age-groups
from 1 to 39 years in 1952, and accounted for 10.4 per cent of the mortality in these
groups. In 1951 tuberculosis was among the first four causes in each age-group from
1 to 39 years, but this year appeared only in those from 5 to 39 years, the percentage
of deaths in this latter group resulting from tuberculosis being 11.9 in 1951 and only
7.1 in 1952.
Diseases of the heart first appears among the four main causes of death in the 30-39
age-group, in which group it is the third leading cause of mortality. In each group from
40 years on, this cause is in first place, having accounted for 42.8 per cent of the deaths
at these ages in 1952, compared to 44.1 per cent in 1951. In second place in the
age-groups from 40 to 79 years is malignant neoplasms, and in the group 80 years and
over vascular lesions of the central nervous system. Accidental deaths are the third most
important cause of death among those aged 40 to 59 years and fourth most important
from 60 to 79 years. Together, the three degenerative causes—diseases of the heart,
malignant neoplasms, and vascular lesions of the central nervous system—accounted for
71.6 per cent of all deaths at ages of 40 years and over.
A comparison of the leading causes by age-groups in 1952 with those for 1943
reveals few important changes in the rank of the various conditions. For the younger
population, tuberculosis declined in importance as a cause of death, and accidents have
become the leading cause. In the older groups, substantially the same causes accounted
for the greater part of the mortality in 1952 as in 1943. VITAL STATISTICS REPORT,  1952

MORTALITY FROM CARDIOVASCULAR-RENAL DISEASES
As Table 12 shows, the various conditions making up the broad category termed
cardiovascular-renal diseases accounted for over half of the total mortality in the Province
in 1952, there having been a 5.6-per-cent increase from 1951 to 1952 in the mortality
thus caused. The death rate from this group of causes increased to 507.7 per 100,000
population from the 1951 rate of 494.2. Only two of the conditions—vascular lesions
of the central nervous system and rheumatic fever—showed decreases from the 1951
totals. The mortality from diseases of the heart increased almost 7 per cent.
The death rate from cardiovascular-renal diseases for the non-Indian population
was 520.3 per 100,000. It has long been observed that the Indians record a more
favourable mortality rate from cardiovascular-renal diseases than do the other groups of
the population.

MORTALITY FROM DISEASES OF THE HEART
Only for chronic rheumatic heart disease in females was there a decrease in the
mortality this year. The most marked increase was shown in deaths from arteriosclerotic
heart disease, the number dying from this cause having increased from 3,287 in 1951 to
3,478 in 1952. For all the heart conditions shown, male mortality exceeded that for
females.

MORTALITY FROM CANCER
There was an increase of over 6 per cent in the cancer mortality rate this year over
that for 1951, the rate of deaths per 100,000 population having increased from 148.6 to
158.2. Malignancies of the intestine took 41 per cent more lives this year than last and
accounted for the greatest part of the higher mortality in 1952. Cancer of the trachea
and of the bronchus and lung not specified as secondary caused 182 deaths in 1951,
compared to 233 in 1952, an increase of 28 per cent. Malignancies of the stomach
resulted in 42 more deaths in 1952 than in 1951, and thus also had a share in increasing
the 1952 mortality rate. Almost one-third of the cancer deaths occur as a result of
malignancies in one of the following four sites: (Esophagus, stomach, intestine, or rectum.

MORTALITY FROM ACCIDENTS AND VIOLENCE
Table 15 shows a cross-classification of accidental and violent deaths by the nature
of the injury and the external cause of the injury.
The proportions of male and female accidental and violent deaths remain unchanged
from the figures for 1951. Seventy-seven per cent of all such deaths were among males.
Fractures of the skull and other head injuries accounted for 26.5 per cent of all male
accidental deaths and 16.5 per cent of all female deaths. The largest single group of
these head injuries resulted from motor-vehicle accidents.
Poisoning resulted in 14 per cent of male accidental deaths and 19 per cent of
female accidental deaths. Among males an almost equal number of these deaths were
the result of accidental poisoning by gases and vapours and of suicidal poisoning, slightly
over a third in each case, whereas among females almost half were suicidal, under a third
being accidental gas poisoning. Internal injury of the chest, abdomen, and pelvis was
third leading cause of accidental death again this year.
The four categories of injuries noted above accounted for 603 deaths, over 50 per
cent of the total.

DEPARTMENT OF HEALTH AND WELFARE
The table below shows that motor-vehicle accidents result in a greater number of
deaths than any of the other accidental or violent causes, accounting for 220 or almost a
fifth of all accidental deaths. The greatest number of these deaths occurred in the 20-29
age-group. Suicide and self-inflicted injury resulted in 182 deaths during the year, and
almost two-thirds of these were in the 40-69 age-group.
There were 168 deaths from accidental falls in 1952. For all other major accidental
and violent causes male mortality is at least three times higher than female mortality, but
for accidental falls only twice as many male deaths occurred. There is a fairly heavy
concentration of female deaths from age 70 on, which increases the mortality for this sex
considerably. When the two sexes are considered together, almost three-fifths of the
mortality from accidental falls occurs after the age of 70 years is reached. Almost the
reverse situation exists for death by drowning and submersion, as 45 per cent of the
mortality is concentrated at the age-groups under 20 years. Female mortality for this
cause is one-fifth that for males.
Transport accidents other than mo tor-vehicle accounted for 100 deaths during
1952, 93 of which were deaths of males. Over half of these deaths occurred among males
aged 20 to 39 years.

MORTALITY FROM TUBERCULOSIS
W 35
While deaths from respiratory tuberculosis declined almost 25 per cent this year,
deaths from other forms of tuberculosis declined by 42 per cent. Tuberculosis attacking
the respiratory system caused 86 per cent of all deaths from this cause in 1948, but the
proportion has gradually risen to 90 per cent in 1952. There has been a decline of 50
per cent since 1949 in the death rate from tuberculosis. British Columbia's tuberculosis
death rate ranks fifth highest amongst the Provinces of Canada.

INFANT MORTALITY
There were 29.2 deaths of infants for every 1,000 live births occurring during the
year in the total population, the lowest rate recorded in the Province's history. The
rate for the population excluding Indians was 24.2, slightly above the figure for 1950
but below the rate of 24.6 recorded last year.
British Columbia had the lowest rate of infant mortality in Canada in 1952, a
position it had held for some time. The National rate was 38, almost a third higher than
that for British Columbia.

MATERNAL MORTALITY
Since 1945 there has been a steady decline in the maternal mortality rate, except
from 1949 to 1950, when the rate remained unchanged at 1.0 death per 1,000 live births.
In 1945 the rate was 2.6, while in 1952 it was only 0.6, a decrease of over 75 per cent.
Such a small number of deaths now occur as a result of the various specific causes of
maternal mortality that it is not possible to assign significance to the changes which occur
in the number of deaths from these individual causes from year to year.
In 1952 the Province, along with Saskatchewan, had the second lowest rate of
maternal mortality, ranking next to Alberta and Manitoba, each of which had rates of only
0.5 per 1,000 live births.   The National rate was 0.9.

MORTALITY FROM NOTIFIABLE DISEASES
An increase of considerable magnitude occurred this year in the mortality from
poliomyelitis, which is not surprising in view of the unprecedented epidemic of this disease
in 1952. The number of deaths increased from 6 in 1951 to 40 in 1952, and the mortality
this year was greater than that for the whole period 1939 to 1951. Influenza mortality
was down sharply from the 1951 epidemic figure of 127 deaths to 46 in 1952. The three
respiratory diseases, tuberculosis, influenza, and pneumonia accounted for 23 per cent of
the deaths from the various notifiable diseases in 1952, while in 1942, they were
responsible for 40 per cent of such deaths. Of the 142 deaths of Indians from the
notifiable diseases shown below, 70 per cent were due to the three respiratory diseases,
tuberculosis, influenza or pneumonia.

While the number of stillbirths increased by 10 this year over the 1951 figure of
365, the number per 1,000 live births was at a new low of 12.6. This was the third
successive year that a decline was registered in stillbirth rate.
British Columbia continues to have the lowest stillbirth rate of any Province in
Canada, well below the National rate of 18.0 per 1,000 five births.

MARRIAGES
As was noted earlier, the rate of marriages per 1,000 population declined this year
to 9.2 from the 1951 rate of 9.7. While the number of divorced people remarrying had
increased by 80 per cent since 1943, marriages of single persons have risen only 13.4
per cent, and of widowed persons, 17.1 per cent. Table 23 shows marriages classified
according to the conjugal condition of the contracting parties.
Table 24 shows the number of marriages occurring in each month of the year. June
and August were the most popular months for marriages in 1952. The table indicates
that a smaller proportion of marriages—namely, 44 per cent—occurred during the first
half of this year than was the case ten years ago, when 49 per cent were performed from
January to June. Marriages by licence continued to decrease, Table 25 showing that
62.4 per cent were so performed in 1952, while marriages by banns again registered an
increase. This year almost one-quarter of all marriages were preceded by the issuance
of banns.   Civil ceremonies represented 12.7 per cent of all marriages in 1952.
Table 26 shows marriages during 1952 according to religious denomination of
officiating minister and whether the marriage was performed by banns or licence. The
greatest number of religious-ceremony marriages were performed by the United Church
ministers, 45.9 per cent in all. Anglican clergymen solemnized 21.6 per cent and Roman
Catholic 13.2 per cent.

PART II.—ADMINISTRATION AND DIVISIONAL
ACTIVITIES
SUMMARY OF REGISTRATION SERVICES
The Division of Vital Statistics performs two functions in the public service—one
statutory and the other statistical. The former comprises the administration of the
" Vital Statistics Act," the " Marriage Act," the " Change of Name Act," and certain
sections of the " Wills Act." The latter consists of providing statistical data not only on
births, deaths, and marriages and other phases of the Division's activities, but also of
carrying out the statistical requirements of all the other divisions of the Health Branch.
Volume of Registration—All Races.—As has been the case since 1945, the
number of registrations filed with the Division has shown an increase over the figure
for the previous year. This year there were 56,801 registrations added to those previously on file with the Division. Table 1 shows the number of registrations received for
each type of event. The increase in the volume of registrations received during the year
was 5 per cent, the greatest proportionate increase since 1946, when the volume was
over 18 per cent higher than that for the previous year. Birth registrations filed with
the Division have steadily increased in number since 1944, and this year contributed an
important part of the increased volume of registration.

Volume of Registration—Indian and Oriental Races.—The following three
tables show births, deaths, and marriages registered among the Indian and Oriental races
for the five-year period 1948-52. While there was an increase in births of Indians registered this year to 1,678 from the 1,485 registered in 1951, the 1952 figure is below that
for 1950, when 1,812 births were registered. Of the registrations of births accepted in
1952, 1,128 related to 1952 births, 132 to 1951 births, and the remaining 418 to births
occurring before 1951. Indian deaths registered number 649, of which 454 were current,
47 were for 1951 events, and 149 were for events prior to 1951. Marriages registered
during the year declined to 184 from the 1951 figure of 209. There were 29 stillbirths
registered during the year, an increase of 8 over the figure of 21 for the previous year.
The large number of Indian registrations filed for earlier years is the result of a special
team of the Division's staff which is working to bring Indian vital-statistics registrations
up to date.

There were 297 registrations of births of Chinese accepted in 1952, and, of these,
276 covered events occurring during the year, the remaining 21 being for events of prior
years. The increase registered this year over the figure for 1951 was more than 10 per
cent, but well below the increase of 34 per cent for the period 1950-51. Death registrations of Chinese during 1952 numbered 335 for males and 29 for females, an indication of the marked excess of males over females in the Chinese population. Marriages
declined in 1952 by over 16 per cent, there having been 97 registered in the year, compared to 116 for 1951. There were two male stillbirths registered among the Chinese
population.

Among the Japanese population there were 155 births registered, and only 5 of
these were for years prior to 1952. Death registrations accepted numbered 45. A decline
occurred in the number of marriages registered from the 1951 figure of 50 to 44. One
Japanese female stillbirth was registered. VITAL STATISTICS REPORT,  1952

Searches.—With the continued growth of the demand for registration services, the
year 1952 saw significant increases in all phases of this work of the Division. There
was an increase of 16 per cent over the preceding year in the total number of searches
performed by the central office.
The number of regular 50-cent searches increased to 29,184, up 816 over the 1951
figure. These are searches for a registration confined to a period of not more than three
years; that is, the year stated by the applicant to be the year of occurrence and those
years immediately preceding and following. The number of searches extending over a
period of more than three years remained relatively unchanged, a total of 125 having
been made during the year.
The greatest increase in searches occurred in the non-revenue group. Non-revenue
searches include searches made on behalf of other Governmental departments and
searches covering applications received within one month of registration. The number
of searches made on behalf of other Governmental departments increased to 6,926, up
1,823 over the previous year, while the other non-revenue searches totalled 19,179,
representing a 36-per-cent increase over the previous year in both cases.
A certain portion of the increase in searches of current registrations was due to the
implementation by the Division of a revision of Form V.S. 61 in July of 1952. This
form, which accompanies each blank registration form forwarded to the parents of all
new-born children, embodies not only an explanation of the procedure for registration
of a birth, but also includes a birth-certificate application which may be completed and
returned to the local District Registrar with the registration. The form presents parents
with the opportunity of making application for certification at a time when all the details
of the birth are familiar, and is proving to be very useful in this regard.
During the past ten years the volume of correspondence received by the central
office of the Division has more than doubled. This trend upward is in line with the
greater activity in the registration and certification services.
Table 6 shows the number of searches performed, classified by type, and the correspondence received by this Division during the years 1943 to 1952. W 50

Certifications.—Previous Annual Reports of this Division have noted the steady
increase in the demand for certificates and other forms of certification from vital-statistics
registrations. A further increase was recorded during 1952, and it is evident that much
of the increase stems from the greater popularity and use of birth certificates in particular.
Applications for the formal certificate, which is the type of certification most frequently requested, showed an increase of almost 18 per cent over the 1951 total issued
by the central office of the Division. Greater numbers of almost all types of certificates
were issued. Birth certificates increased from a total of 26,566 a year ago to 32,360
for 1952. The wallet-size laminated certificate remains the most popular form of birth
certification, accounting for approximately 76 per cent of the total issued during the last
three years. In 1952 the number of laminated certificates produced by the central office
amounted to 24,807.
There was a slight decrease in the other major form of certification, the certified
copy. These copies, which are a full reproduction of the original registration, usually in
photographic form, declined from 6,103 in 1951 to 5,331 this year.
In addition to the above certifications, there may be issued by the District Registrars'
offices certificates from those registrations of births, deaths, and marriages for which the
original registration is still on file in the district office. This enables an applicant to
obtain a certificate from the local District Registrar without having to wait until the
original registration is received in Victoria. Registrations are forwarded to the central
office from the districts on a weekly basis. The Vancouver office of the Division produces
the greatest number of these local certifications. A total of 9,251 birth, death, and
marriage certificates were issued by that office during the year 1952.
The following table indicates the number of revenue-producing certifications issued
by the central office of the Division for the period 1946-52:—

Revenue.-—The part of this Province's general revenue collected by the Division of
Vital Statistics continued its upward trend of the past two years. Revenue under the
"Vital Statistics Act" increased from $48,743 in 1951 to $52,566.95 in 1952. This
year total moneys collected amounted to $98,814.95, compared to $95,648 received
in 1951.
Revenue derived under the "Marriage Act" declined slightly during 1952, totalling
$46,248, compared to $46,905 for the previous year. As was discussed at some length
in last year's Report, the decreasing number of marriages, combined with a decrease in
the number of marriages performed under authority of a marriage licence, is responsible
for this decline.
A major portion of the total " Vital Statistics Act" revenue was received through
the central office of the Division. Revenue from this source amounted to $44,075.33, or
84 per cent of the total. However, only $4,891 or 11 per cent of the moneys derived
from the issuance of marriage licences and the performance of civil marriages was received
by the central office.

REGISTRATION OF BIRTHS
The registration of births continued in a very satisfactory manner during 1952.
For several years there has been every indication that virtually all births occurring in the
Province are being registered, the only exceptions being births which occur amongst
a small sect of the Doukhobor population and a few births which occur to Indians living
in isolated areas.
The registration system has been developed to make birth registration as convenient
and as simple as possible. As with other vital-statistics events, births must be registered
in the registration district in which they occurred. A very high percentage of the
Province's population has direct access to a local District Registrar of Births, Deaths, and
Marriages, although it is not necessary for the parents to appear in person before the
Registrar. In most registration districts, blank birth-registration forms and instructions
are mailed to the parents by the District Registrar as soon as he has been informed of the
birth by the attending physician. The physician is required by law to report the birth
within forty-eight hours of the event, although this reporting by the doctor does not
constitute registration. The responsibility for registering the birth is fixed by Statute on
the parents.
A small number of fraudulent and improper birth registrations continue to come to
light, and each case is carefully investigated by the Inspector of Vital Statistics. The
majority of fraudulent and improper registrations relate to illegitimate children, and W 52 DEPARTMENT OF HEALTH AND WELFARE
usually result from a vain or misguided attempt by the mother to conceal the fact of
illegitimacy. It is pointed out that information of this nature which is reported to this
Division is treated as being absolutely confidential.
Indians.—Efforts are continuing to be made to familiarize the Indian population
with the value of accurate registration of vital statistics. It is apparent that the Indian
Superintendents are doing much to encourage the practice of obtaining birth certificates
for new-born children as well as for the older members of families.
Results of policies formulated and carried out during the last several years have been
very gratifying, and there is reason to believe that registration of current births is virtually
complete.
Doukhobors.—Little difficulty was encountered in the attitude of most Doukhobors
toward registration of births. However, members of the Sons of Freedom sect still refuse
to file registrations.
The field representative carried on his activities until he voluntarily resigned near
the end of the year in favour of other employment. After making a careful study of the
value of continuing such a service, it was considered that the gains which had been
anticipated during the last several years had largely been achieved, and that it would be
an opportune time to discontinue this appointment.
School-teachers' Returns.—The purpose of this return is to provide a means of
checking the completeness and accuracy of birth registration amongst children enrolling
in school for the first time. Within the last several years there has been a substantial
increase in the demand for certification at an early age, thus diminishing the need of
school returns, as any lack of registration or inaccuracy is thus detected at an early age
and corrected. For this reason, it has been possible to relieve the teachers of the work
of completing the reports, except in those areas of the Province where registration
problems are known to exist. However, reports are submitted by all schools which have
Indian children enrolled, as the Division is carrying out an extensive programme designed
to raise the standard of registration amongst the Indian population.
Within the white population, reports were received from 61 schools during the
school-year 1951-52, covering a total of 203 children. Of the 185 of these children
who were born in British Columbia, it was found that the births of 20 were unregistered.
Steps were immediately taken to ensure that registrations of these cases were completed.
During the same term 131 schools submitted reports of Indians. Of these, 11
indicated that no Indian children were enrolled for the first time. A total of 1,197 Indian
pupils attended school for the first time, and records of these children showed a high
percentage of discrepancies. In many cases the information supplied by the parents to
the schools was found to be inaccurate and amended accordingly in the school records.
In other instances it was discovered that errors had been made by parents in the completion of the original birth registration. Action was promptly taken to have these
corrected.
Fraudulent Registrations.—The " Vital Statistics Act" makes provision for the
cancellation of a registration of birth which has been fraudulently or improperly obtained.
As noted above, most fraudulent registrations are made by mothers who are attempting to conceal the fact of an illegitimate birth. Before any registration is cancelled,
a hearing is ordered, at which all parties to the registration are required to attend. Any
person possessing a certificate in respect to a cancelled registration must return it to the
Director for cancellation.
During 1952, 36 registrations of birth were found to have been fraudulently or
improperly obtained, an increase of 9 over the number for the previous year. A check
of the circumstances surrounding the filing of these registrations reveals that deliberate VITAL STATISTICS REPORT,  1952 W 53
attempts at fraud for financial or other such reasons were not involved. The careful
cross-checking of registrations by the District Registrars and at the central office serves
as a strong deterrent to the filing of false registrations.
Legitimations.—The " Legitimation Act" makes it possible for a child born out
of wedlock to be legitimated subsequent to the marriage of the parents, while the " Vital
Statistics Act" provides for a new registration to be substituted for the original which
was filed. This new registration gives the details as at the time of birth, but the parents
are shown as being married to one another. Evidence of the legitimation satisfactory
to the Director is required to be filed by the parents. The original registration is removed
from the register and kept separately thereafter. The circumstances surrounding the
legitimation are investigated by the Superintendent of Child Welfare in cases where
paternity was not established at the time of birth.
There was a decline in the number of these legitimations this year to 143 from the
figure of 200 for 1951, and, of these, 78 were male and 65 were female.
DELAYED REGISTRATION OF BIRTHS
The bulk of applications for delayed registrations was again confined to persons born
before the year 1920, indicating there has been a much more thorough coverage of
registration during the last thirty years than existed before.
The payment of Federal Old Age Security pensions and the lowering of the age-limit
for eligibility for Provincial old-age pensions has increased the number of applications
for birth registrations and for certification among this older age-group, and it is reasonable
to believe that this increased demand will be sustained.
The Division continued to be active in its search for material which could be used
for supporting evidence in conjunction with applications for delayed registrations. As
a result, some important additions, in the form of baptismal records, were made.
The Division has continued to be guided by the Schedule of Minimum Standards
of Evidence acceptable in the filing of delayed registrations of birth. This Schedule was
laid down at the Dominion-Provincial Conference on Vital Statistics in 1944, and which
is uniformly adhered to by all Provinces of Canada. In effect, this Schedule requires
that the Registrar have documentary proof of a good quality before he accepts an
application for a delayed registration. The necessity of good supporting proof is often
not understood by the applicants, who, if they are the parents, often feel that no one is
in a better position than they are themselves to assert that the birth did take place at the
time and place stated. The insistence of the Registrar on adequate documentary proof
is, of course, a most vital factor, since the whole value of birth certificates as legal
documents proving the facts stated thereon would be undermined if persons were
permitted to file a registration at will.
The volume of delayed registrations received was somewhat higher than that for
the previous period, there having been 875 accepted, compared to 738 for 1951. It is
expected that the number of such registrations should soon commence to show a decrease
as the recording for the period involved becomes reasonably complete.
Indians.—While Indians make up only 2.4 per cent of the population of the Province, they account for almost one-half of the delayed registrations of birth filed with the
Division. This situation exists because the registration of Indian births was on a voluntary
basis until 1943, from which date registration became mandatory as for the other-than-
Indian population in the Province. Obviously a difficult situation was created, in that
a large accumulation of unregistered Indian births existed for years prior to 1943. The
Division has exerted considerable effort to assist in the work of filing the necessary
delayed registration, having built up a very useful set of verification material which
frequently expedites the completion of these registrations.    At the  same time the W 54 DEPARTMENT OF HEALTH AND WELFARE
co-operation of the Indian Affairs Branch and the Department of Citizenship  and
Immigration has been very gratifying and helpful.
During 1952 a total of 418 delayed registrations of Indian births were filed with the
Division, an increase over the 357 accepted in 1951.
REGISTRATION OF DEATHS
The registration of deaths which occur in the Province is virtually complete, except
in isolated localities. As with the other series of registrations, a system of cross-checking
is used as a means of ensuring full reporting and satisfactory cause of death certification.
One gap in the recording of deaths stems from the inability of the Division to
register deaths when bodies are not recovered. Particularly does this apply to drownings,
although other circumstances may cause destruction or loss of bodies. In such cases,
proof of the fact of death is generally obtained by orders of presumption of death issued
by the Court, but a death registration cannot be made for such cases. While this procedure satisfies various requirements for proof of death, it does not provide for statistical
information on the cause of death. A special committee of the Vital Statistics Council
for Canada has been set up to study this problem.
Indians.—The registration of deaths of Indians still presents some difficulties, due
partly to lack of good transportation facilities in many areas settled by these people and
by their unconcern for this convention of the white man, from which they can see no
immediate benefit. An educational campaign in this respect is being carried on with the
various chiefs by the Indian Superintendents, who attempt to explain the true meaning
and importance of registration to them. Progress is slow, however, and in all probability
many years will elapse before Indian death registration is entirely satisfactory.
Doukhobors.—Little change was noted in the past year concerning the registration
of deaths of Doukhobors. It appears that complete and accurate reporting of deaths will
not be achieved until these people are further persuaded to comply with the statutory
requirements, and until the bodies of all deceased persons are disposed of by professional
undertakers. In many Doukhobor villages a neighbour of the deceased person prepares
a coffin, and the burial is conducted as a family affair. Through ignorance, and sometimes
through disregard of the law, some bodies are thus buried without notification of any kind
to the appropriate authorities.
REGISTRATION OF STILLBIRTHS
The term "birth," where used in the "Vital Statistics Act," also includes stillbirths,
and, therefore, the registration of stillbirths as defined by the Act is required. A special
form is provided by the Division for this purpose. A stillbirth is defined as being " the
birth of a viable foetus after at least twenty-eight weeks' pregnancy in which pulmonary
respiration does not occur, whether death occurs before, during, or after birth."
Only a slight increase occurred in 1952 in the number of stillbirths registered, from
the figure of 348 in 1951 to 359 this year.
REGISTRATION OF MARRIAGES
The responsibility for registering a marriage rests with the person solemnizing the
event; namely, the officiating clergyman or Marriage Commissioner. This method of
obtaining marriage registrations has proven very satisfactory over a period of many years
and is the method generally used in other Provinces and countries.
Marriage registers are provided free of charge to clergy and Marriage Commissioners.
These are returned to the Division periodically in order that they may be checked against
the indexes of registrations filed with the Division. If it is thus ascertained that an event
has been unrecorded, steps are promptly taken to obtain a registration. VITAL STATISTICS REPORT, 1952 W 55
Marriage registrations are also checked to ensure that the marriage has been
solemnized by a duly registered minister or clergyman, or Civil Marriage Commissioner,
as required by the "Marriage Act." Occasionally marriages are discovered which,
through ignorance or inadvertence, have been performed by an unregistered clergyman.
Where possible, steps are immediately taken to secure validation of the marriage.
Indians.—Indications are that the registration of Indian marriages is reasonably
complete.
Doukhobors.—The attitude of Doukhobors toward the solemnization of marriages
in a legal manner has, as in the case of the registration of deaths of these people, shown
little change. However, some Doukhobor couples have been married by Marriage
Commissioners, although the number is not large. It appears that most Doukhobor
marriages are performed according to Doukhobor custom only. It is unfortunate that
the Doukhobors do not see fit to fall in line with the legal requirements for marriage, as
have virtually all other religious and racial groups of the population. Such requirements
in no way restrict or impinge upon the form of the religious ceremony which the respective
denominations choose to follow.
REGISTRATION OF ADOPTION ORDERS
The requirements regarding adoption of unmarried minor children are set forth in
the "Adoption Act." Where the Court hearing the petition for adoption is satisfied
regarding the circumstances of the adoption, an order may be made that the adoption be
effected. A copy of the adoption order is forwarded by the Registrar of the Court to the
Director of Vital Statistics, together with any other information needed to enable him to
carry out the provisions of the "Vital Statistics Act" in respect to the registration of
adoptions. Inspection of the documents filed with the Director in connection with the
adoption is allowed only to officials of the Crown in discharge of their official duties, or
to a person authorized by the Provincial Secretary in writing, or to a person authorized
by a ludge of the Court presiding in Chambers.
When an order regarding an adoption is received by the Division, a marginal
notation is made on the original registration of birth showing the child's name by adoption,
and this name appears on any certificates subsequently issued from the registration.
No information regarding the natural parents of the child may be released.
There were 929 adoptions ordered by the Supreme Court during the year, an
18-per-cent increase over the 1951 figure of 789. For all the 811 children born in this
Province who were adopted, notations were made in the registration of birth. For those
children who were born outside of this Province, photostatic copies of the adoption orders
were forwarded to the Province or State concerned.
REGISTRATION OF DIVORCES
Details regarding dissolutions and nullities of marriage are entered in the registry
of the Supreme Court having jurisdiction over the area concerned. The Division is
supplied with a certified copy of the decree of dissolution or nullity, and on receipt of this
a notation is made on the registration of marriage if the marriage occurred in this Province.
The notation indicates the date and place of dissolution, and any certificate subsequently
issued from the registration contains this information. In cases where the marriage
occurred outside the Province, the Province of marriage is notified in order that the
necessary notations may be made on the marriage registration. Where the Division is
notified of a dissolution or nullity taking place in another Province and involving
a marriage occurring in British Columbia, the necessary notations are made in this office
on the original marriage registration. W 56 DEPARTMENT OF HEALTH AND WELFARE
The number of dissolutions and nullities filed with the Division increased by 14 per
cent this year, from 1,385 in 1951 to 1,581. Of the total, 1,532 were dissolutions and
49 nullities.
REGISTRATION OF NOTICES OF FILING A WILL
There were 14,798 notices showing the location of the last will of the respective
testators filed as at December 31st, 1952. Legislation requiring the Division to receive
and file such notices was enacted in 1945. Although the response from the general public
was slow for the first several years, there has been a great increase in the number of
notices filed within the last few years. During 1952 there were 3,989 notices filed with
the Division, as compared with 2,700 in 1951, while 2,200 were received in 1950 and
only 1,500 in 1949.
Notices are indexed immediately upon receipt, so that searches made will include
the most recently filed documents.
As was envisioned at the commencement of this service, a problem is developing
regarding a means of identification due to repetition of like names in the index. The
Division has attempted to overcome this by providing a form of notice which embodies
certain identifying personal particulars and encouraging its use. However, since there
is no statutory obligation to furnish these details, many notices are received with very
limited identifying information. Ultimately a portion of these will cause difficulty to the
Division and to the executors of estates in making positive identification of testators.
It appears that the remedy lies in statutory changes being made with respect to the
preparation and submission of wills notices.
LEGAL CHANGES OF NAME
A major responsibility of the Division is the administration of the " Change of Name
Act." Since this Act was assented to in December of 1940, it has been illegal for a person
to change his or her name in this Province except in accordance with this Statute. The
principal requirements for a change of name are that the person be 21 years of age or
over, a British subject, and a resident of this Province. An application for change of
name may cover more than one individual in a family. Thus a married man need only
file one application to cover a change of surname and (or) given names for himself, his
wife, and any unmarried minor children in his family.
A considerable increase occurred in the number of applications for change of name
this year, there having been 443 in 1952, as compared to 378 in 1951. From the date
of assent to the "Change of Name Act" to the end of 1952, there have been 3,592
applications for change of name granted.

1 " Change of Name Act" assented to December 6th, 1940.
REGISTRATION OF MINISTERS AND CLERGYMEN
The " Marriage Act" requires that before a minister or clergyman may solemnize
marriage in this Province, he must first be registered with this Division. For denominations previously recognized, the registration is made upon the advice of the governing
authority of the denomination. Denominations not previously recognized must first
comply with certain requirements of the Act relative to continuity of existence, and
established rites and usages respecting the solemnization of marriage, before their
ministers may be registered.
Applications were made by four religious groups during the year for recognition
pursuant to the terms of the " Marriage Act" for registration of their ministers. Of
these, one group was granted recognition, one was refused, and the remaining two were
in the process of completing documentation at the year's end.
In addition, inquiries were made by thirteen other groups, who were advised of
the requirements to be fulfilled before their ministers may solemnize marriage. There
has not been a clear indication whether or not any of these groups will pursue the matter
beyond the first inquiry.
Orders permitting remarriage, as required by section 47 of the " Marriage Act,"
were approved in fourteen cases.
In eight instances where marriages had been solemnized in good faith but the
officiant had been unregistered at the date of marriage, validations were ordered as
provided in the " Marriage Act."
Form Ml, Application for Registration of Minister or Clergyman, was revised in
a simplified form and placed in use.
Registrations of ministers and clergymen showed a considerable increase over 1951.
There were 282 authorizations granted during the year, a 20-per-cent increase over the
1951 figure of 236. Cancellations also increased, there having been 239 in 1951 and
280 in 1952. An increase of 2 occurred in the number of ministers and clergymen on
register at the end of 1952.

CORRECTIONS AND AMENDMENTS TO REGISTRATIONS
There are many circumstances which may cause change in the personal records of
any individual. For example, when given names and (or) surnames are changed,
adoptions or dissolutions of marriage are ordered by the Courts, or errors in information
originally supplied are detected, it becomes necessary to amend the registrations involved
in order that they may reflect accurate and up-to-date information.
Where it appears that the information on a registration should be amended, on
receipt of a statutory declaration from someone with personal knowledge of the matter,
together with documentary evidence supporting the amendment, the necessary changes
may be made in the registration.
In order to ensure that the number of future changes will be kept to a minimum, all
current registrations processed in the Division are carefully scrutinized to guard against
obvious errors and omissions which might later cause difficulty to the individual and
additional work in the central office in making amendments. It will be readily seen,
however, that the accuracy of much of the information given on a registration can only
be checked by the informant or other members of the family. All registrations which
have been amended are immediately remicrofilmed and the indexes amended accordingly.
The number of notations made in 1952 declined in total from the figure of 535 for
1951 to 484. This was the same number as for 1950. Alterations of Christian names
increased markedly, from 148 in 1951 to 193 this year. Other notations declined from
387 to 271. W 60 DEPARTMENT OF HEALTH AND WELFARE
DISTRICT REGISTRARS' OFFICES AND INSPECTIONS
Changes in Registration Districts.—With the opening of the new Court-house in
Courtenay, the Government Agency was transferred from Cumberland to Courtenay.
Accordingly, the Vital Statistics Registration Districts of Cumberland and Courtenay
were redefined and consolidated into one registration district—the Registration District
of Courtenay. This change enabled the Division to relieve the Royal Canadian Mounted
Police detachment at Courtenay with the appointment of a District Registrar and Marriage Commissioner, and to turn over the records to the Government Agency.
The Royal Canadian Mounted Police headquarters has continued to press its
requests to be relieved of vital-statistics duties in certain areas. Therefore, in addition
to transferring the Courtenay office, five other district offices have been transferred from
police offices. These offices include Campbell River and Chemainus, which are now
handled by the Village and Municipal Clerks respectively; the Hope office, which has
been transferred over to the local Stipendiary Magistrate and Coroner; and the Haney
office, which has been taken over by a private individual. Also, the office at Teslin,
Yukon Territory, was closed out and no replacement made, as it is felt that the few
registrations received do not warrant the continuance of an appointment in that district.
With the opening of the Kitimat area, it was felt that a representative in that district
would be desirable. Accordingly, the local Stipendiary Magistrate was appointed a
Deputy District Registrar of Births, Deaths, and Marriages and a Marriage Commissioner
for the Registration District of Prince Rupert, with location of office at Kitimat.
As pointed out in the section on " Registrations of Vital Statistics amongst the
Doukhobors," the special Deputy District Registrar working amongst the Doukhobors
in the West Kootenay area resigned his position, effective October 31st, 1952. At the
time of writing a successor has not been appointed.
Inspections.—Thirty-two offices and sub-offices, covering Vancouver Island, Powell
River, Squamish, Fraser Valley extending as far as Hope, and the Okanagan area extending to Revelstoke, were visited by the Inspector of Vital Statistics during the year.
In addition, instructional visits were made to seven Indian Agencies. Visits were
also made to the New Westminster, North Vancouver, and Vancouver offices.
In those offices where the duties were transferred from the Royal Canadian Mounted
Police—namely, Campbell River, Hope, Chemainus, and Haney—the Inspector was on
hand to arrange the transfer of duties from the police officers and to instruct and familiarize the new incumbents with the various procedures, forms, etc., which a district office
must follow and use in order to operate in an efficient manner.
A visit was also made to Nelson to close the office of the special Deputy District
Registrar for Doukhobors and to take inventory of that office.
At the close of the year there were ninety-one offices and sub-offices in seventy-one
registration districts, one less than the previous year because of the consolidation of the
Courtenay and Cumberland Districts.
Thirty-seven of the offices are Government Agencies or Sub-Agencies, while twenty-
three of the offices are operated by Royal Canadian Mounted Police personnel. Six more
offices are operated by Village or Municipal Clerks, nine offices by Provincial Government employees, and sixteen by private individuals, including merchants, postmasters,
Stipendiary Magistrates, Game Wardens, and a Canadian Customs official.
MICROFILMING OF DOCUMENTS
All current registrations of births, deaths, marriages, and stillbirths were photographed on a weekly basis, the records for all previous years having been done in a
prior period. Amendments to registrations, caused by adoptions, divorces, changes of
name, etc., were photographed currently, and the amended images spliced on to the
appropriate rolls of film. VITAL STATISTICS REPORT,  1952 W 61
Several miscellaneous microfilming projects were completed during the year, as
follows:—
(a) 250 complete files re applications for change of name.
(b) 8,000 files of adoption orders and supporting documents (1920 to 1951,
inclusive).
(c) 1,400 files of dissolution and nullity of marriage (1935 to 1951, inclusive).
(d) 3,300 notices of change of name (1941 to 1951, inclusive).
(e) Miscellaneous medical and institutional records concerning births.
A separate project of photographing 806 large blue-prints of water and sewer systems was carried out for the Division of Public Health Engineering.
GENERAL OFFICE PROCEDURES
The Division laboured under extremely serious conditions of overcrowding and
poor facilities for most of the year. This was caused by the great increase in volume of
certification within the last ten years and the undertaking by the Division of additional
duties and responsibilities. During that period there had been no increase in office
space. However, during November certain structural changes were made in the office,
which increased the amount of space available to the Division and provided some measure
of improvement.
The year 1952 was a period of unprecedented changes of staff and absences due to
illness. Several persons resigned or transferred in favour of other employment. Recruitment of satisfactory replacements was exceedingly difficult. In most cases a period of
several weeks elapsed between the date when the vacancy occurred and the date when
the successor reported for duty. One member of the staff retired on superannuation in
September.
The frequency of minor illnesses considerably aggravated the problems created by
staff changes. There were many occasions during the year when the normal work-flow
was maintained under the utmost difficulties. However, through the outstanding cooperation of the staff, there were only a few periods when the issuance of certificates was
delayed more than a day or two.
Effect of Old-age Security Legislation.—As had been anticipated, the introduction
of this legislation has caused a noticeably higher volume of certification than was experienced previously. Although direct verification of birth of each applicant is the primary
object of most persons, the lack of a birth registration usually leads to the more indirect
method of proving age by information shown on marriage certificates, baptismal certificates, etc. There has therefore been a heavier demand for certificates of this type than
existed formerly.
Survey of Division.—In August of this year, in line with Government policy, the
firm of Kellogg & Stevenson Limited carried out a survey of the Division. This included
a review of the organization of the Division and personnel allocation, duties and responsibilities, routines and methods. It was gratifying that this firm of management engineers
found the office routines and procedure of the Division to be adequate in all respects.
No recommendations for changes or improvements were made.
STATISTICAL SERVICES
Routine Services.—Those services rendered by the Division in its capacity of statistical workshop for all vital and public-health statistics continued throughout the year
at a steady pace. Detailed statistical analyses were maintained of all births, deaths,
marriages, stillbirths, adoptions, divorces, changes of name, and other data. In addition,
the Division met a wide range of requests for a variety of statistical data, received not
only from other Health Branch services, but from other Governmental departments, both W 62 DEPARTMENT OF HEALTH AND WELFARE
Provincial and Federal, and the general public.    Following is a listing of some of the
routine activities carried out by the statistical section:—

Canadian Sickness Survey.—The current year saw the completion, on the Provincial level, of the National Sickness Survey, with the submission to the Department of
National Health and Welfare of the data compiled by the enumerators and of a comprehensive report covering all aspects of the survey in British Columbia. The survey was
undertaken in 1950 as a joint effort between Federal and Provincial Health Departments.
The data collected during this survey are presently being tabulated at Ottawa, and the
first analyses are anticipated in the near future. The statistics which will be forthcoming
should prove to be a valuable source of information and interest to all persons concerned
with the health of the population.
Physician's Notice of Live Birth or Stillbirth.—The first tabulations of the data
reported on the revised Physician's Notice of Live Birth or Stillbirth form, which was
put into use in 1951, were made during the year. Although it is still too early to draw
any conclusions from the analytical study of these tabulations, as the series builds up,
much valuable information on the circumstances surrounding births within this Province VITAL STATISTICS REPORT, 1952 W 63
will be forthcoming. The information is also being used in connection with infant-
mortality studies, and a punch-card has been drawn up and put into use which correlates
information from the physician's notice, the birth registration, and the death registration.
Statistics of the Mental Health Services.—Early in the year the Division was
requested by the Provincial Secretary's Department to review the existing record and statistical system in use in the Mental Health Services, with a view to making recommendations which might lead to improvements in the processing and utilization of mental-health
statistics. A preliminary survey was carried out and, from the information gathered,
a number of suggestions were made. It was agreed that certain statistics should be
transferred to punch-cards, to be processed by the Mechanical Tabulation Section of this
Division. It is intended that the new service, which is planned to commence by April,
1953, will provide not only the statistics required for the planning and operation of the
expanding mental-health programme in the Province, but will also supply that information required by the Dominion Bureau of Statistics in its compilation of institutional
statistics on the National level.
Notifiable Disease Statistics.—Important changes were made in the system of
notifiable-disease recording, with a view to making the statistics more readily available
and of greater use. The work of this section was heightened greatly during the year
because of the serious poliomyelitis epidemic. A complete record was kept of every
poliomyelitis case reported, and during the height of the epidemic an up-to-the-minute
picture of the situation was available at all times.
Cancer Registry.—Cancer was made a notifiable disease in this Province at the
request of the medical profession in 1932, and since that time it has been the responsibility of this Division to promote and establish the complete reporting of this disease.
The purpose of this reporting is to make possible the provision of up-to-date data on the
cancer problem in the Province, and to make these data available to the medical profession and other agencies interested in cancer. Although the term "cancer" is almost
universally used by the layman to refer to any malignant growth, technically the term
refers only to a specific type of malignant growth. In order to remove any doubts which
might result from inaccurate terminology, Form A-7, used for reporting cases of this
disease, was revised to read "Report of Malignant Neoplasm" instead of "Report of
Cancer" as formerly. Tables showing new cancer notifications, reported live cases by
site and sex, notifications by sex and age-group, and reported live cases by sex and age-
group for the Province during 1952 may be found on pages 80 and 81 of the Report of
the Health Branch for the year 1952.
Reorganization of Record System in the Division of Tuberculosis Control.—
In 1948 the Division of Vital Statistics was requested by the Medical Director of the
Division of Tuberculosis Control to make a study of the tuberculosis record system. The
work was undertaken shortly thereafter and has been carried on largely by the Vancouver
office of the Division of Vital Statistics. When the project was planned, it was organized
as a survey to investigate changes which could be recommended in the tuberculosis record
system to make it more effective. However, as the work progressed, it became apparent
that this was a continuing project and could best be carried out with the Vancouver office
acting in an advisory capacity to the Division of Tuberculosis Control. The problem has
three distinct phases: The completion of the individual patient's record, the actual record
forms in use, and the statistics compiled from these records.
One of the first problems tackled was the manner of completion of the individual
patient's record, and it was recommended by the Division of Vital Statistics in 1950 that
a trained medical-record librarian be attached to the Division of Tuberculosis Control to
be in charge of all records within the Division. This suggestion was implemented in
September of 1951, and since that time improvement has been noted in all the medical W 64 DEPARTMENT OF HEALTH AND WELFARE
records. Much work still remains to be done in the supervision of the recording procedures in the various units of the Division and in the compilation of a manual of instructions covering all the records in the Division.
At the time the survey was commenced, there were 156 different medical records in
use in the Division. Not all of these forms were in current use in every unit, but very
few of them had been declared obsolete. With the appointment of the records librarian,
these were all reviewed in consultation with the statistician in the Vancouver office.
Forty-two of the numbered tuberculosis records have now been declared obsolete.
Eighteen new records have been added after consultation with the various medical and
nursing staffs. Three new procedures have been established in connection with records,
as follows:—
(1) All revisions or new records are being circularized through the various
sections of the Division of Tuberculosis Control for comments and suggestions before they are finalized. Most of the new records are being
multilithed so that modifications can easily be made. These will be reviewed for printing at regular intervals.
(2) Each section has been supplied with a register of all numbered record
forms now in use in the Division of Tuberculosis Control.
(3) All sections are estimating their record requirements for a six- or twelvemonth period, and the requisitions for these orders are checked through
the Vancouver office. A consolidated order for the printing of records is
now placed with the Queen's Printer at one time instead of more frequent
individual requisitions as in the past.
The statistics being compiled for the Division of Tuberculosis Control have been
under critical discussion several times. The annual statistical report of the Division has
been reviewed, and, as a result, certain tables have been deleted in the light of changed
procedures, some tables have been added, and certain other tables have been redesigned
in the interests of simplicity and clarity. However, the general subject-matter covered
by the statistical report has not been materially altered. It is the feeling of both the
Division of Vital Statistics and the Division of Tuberculosis Control that greater use
might still be made of the statistical material which is gathered within these Divisions. In
view of this, it was recommended that a Medical Record Committee, consisting mainly
of medical personnel, be appointed on a permanent basis. This Committee has been
appointed and is available to the medical-records librarian and to the Division of Vital
Statistics in an advisory capacity in connection with technical problems of the record
system. The appointment of this Committee is considered to be of major importance in
further developing the record system in the Division of Tuberculosis Control, and should
result in better planning and utilization of statistics on tuberculosis in this Province than
has been possible in the past.
Revision of Annual Vital-statistics Tabulation Programme.—As mentioned in
the introduction, a major revision has been made in the format of Part III of this Report.
This revision marks the first important change in the set-up of the detailed tables on vital
statistics which have been presented in the Annual Reports of the Division from 1927
onward. Since the year 1921 the vital statistics for each Province (excluding Quebec
until 1926) and for Canada as a whole have been compiled on a uniform basis by common agreement. In many cases the tables printed by each Province have also been in
substantially the same form, although certain dissimilarities have existed. As noted
above, this Province has followed the standardized pattern of detailed tables since 1927.
In the interests of comparability and ready reference it is highly desirable that tables
of this nature be presented in the same form and on the same basis from one year to the
next. However, it is also desirable that the tables should be kept as useful and as informative as possible, and that additional classifications of data be added where necessary VITAL STATISTICS REPORT, 1952
W 65
to meet new needs. The tables which now appear in Part III of this Report have been
designed to show as much detail as seemed practical in the light of present needs and
anticipated future requirements. It is the intention to retain this form of presentation
for another extended period of time.
The revised schedule of tables is the result of an extensive study of the Canadian
vital-statistics tabulation programme, carried out jointly by the Vital Statistics Council
for Canada and the Dominion Bureau of Statistics. Work on this revision was undertaken during the year 1952, and final approval was obtained at a special session of the
Vital Statistics Council for Canada in March of 1953. At the same time, uniform annual
close-off dates of the various series of registrations for statistical purposes were agreed
upon, and this, together with the revised tabulation schedule, will speed up the production of Canadian vital-statistics tables by several months each year. The revised tabulation programme and schedule of detailed tables will be adhered to basically by all
Provinces of Canada in Annual Vital Statistics Reports. However, each Province is not
committed to printing the entire schedule of tables nor to following rigidly the pattern
which has been agreed upon.
Appreciation is expressed to the staff of the Dominion Bureau of Statistics, who
carried out the major share of the work in this important revision by summarizing and
analysing the tables formerly presented, by drafting the working copies of the proposed
revision, and by collecting and summarizing the comments and criticisms of the individual Provinces. W 66
