Births and Deaths—Third Quarter, 1923--Scotland.

the registra from the returital statis

The accompanying tables were compiled from data given in the
“Quarterly return of the births, deaths, and marriages registered in
Scotland” during the quarter ended September 30, 1923, published
by authority of the registrar general of Scotland.

The following are extracts from the return:

“The more outstanding features of the vital statistics in Scotland
during the third quarter of the year are a birth rate of 21.9 per
thousand, a marriage rate of 8.0 and a death rate of 10.6. The
birth rate continues to show a fall. It is 1.9 less than that of the
previous quarter, and 0.7 less than that of the third quarter of last
year. The marriage rate shows an increase when compared both
with what it was in the previous quarter and what it was in the
corresponding quarter of last year, being 0.8 more than in the pre-
vious quarter and. 0.4 more than in the third quarter of last year.
The quarterly death rate is the lowest recorded since the introduc-
tion of national registration. It is 2.7 less than that of the previous
quarter and 0.1 less than the corresponding quarter of last year, in
which quarter the previous lowest recorded death rate occurred.

"The illegitimate children registered during the quarter numbered
1,880, which number, although 13 more than in the previous quarter,
is 82 less than in the third quarter of last year. It is less than in
all previous third quarters, with the exception of the third quarters
of the years 1915 and 1917.

.
“The infantile mortality rate of the quarter was 62 per thousand
births, and is the lowest Scottish quarterly infantile mortality rate
yet recorded.

“ The death rates from all forms of tuberculosis and from phthisis
were 98 and 67 per 100,000, respectively, and both are exceptionally
low.

“The death rate from malignant disease was 129 per 100,000. It
remains at the same high level as was found in the previous quarter."
