Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - December 11, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta 11. 1974 THE LETHBRIDOE HERALD 41 Canada, U.S. approaching 'zero' population growth UNITED NATIONS (CP) A UN study says that the natural population growth rate of Canada and the United States appears to be approaching' 'close to zero.'' The study was prepared by the UN Secretariat based on its own estimates and projec- tions. It was part of a lengthy, report by the UN economic and social council on the wot Id social situation, dealing initially with North America. Recent demographic changes in both countries are a continuation of the trends of the 1960s, the report says. In Canada, the birth rate de- clined to 15.9 per in 1972 from 17.6 in .1969. "Since the proportion of women of child-bearing age changed little during the period, this fall in the crude birth rate represents a real decrease in says the report. Young wives in the U.S. an- ticipated having an average of only 2.3 children in a survey taken in 1973, down from 2 9 in a similar survey in 1967. The report noted that infant mortality rates were lower in Canada than in the U.S. and life expectancy higher for Canadians Infant mortality rates de- IMPORTANT NOTICE Christmas Season City Hall Hours City Hall will remain OPEN and all Departments will operate on a regular basis on Saturday, December 21st.

All essential services will operate through- out the Christmas Season on a regular basis. John Gerla, City Clerk clined to 17.1 per thousand in 1972 from 19 per thousand in 1969 in Canada. Crude death rates did not change sig- nificantly. Life expectancy at birth averaged 72 years for males and females in Canada and 711 in the U.S. The report also showed these other trends in the pop- ulation of average size of house- holds dropped to 3 6 persons from 40 between 1961 and 1971. This change was partly due to the decline in birth rates and partly to an increase in the number of single-person households, young adults or the elderly living alone. significant effect of the recent decline in population growth has been a change in the distribution of population by age Between 1966 and 1971, the proportion of the popula- tion 15 to 24 years increased to 18.6 from 16 5 per cent and the number under five declined to 8.4 from 12.4 per cent. Those above 65 made up 8.1 per cent of the populatiqn in 1971 com- pared with 7 7 per cent in 1966. over-all distribution of population by ethnic group also changed The most rapid growth was among persons of Greek, Portuguese and Chinese origins. Immigration also swelled the Italian ethnic group which comprised 3.4 per cent of the 1971 population compared with 2 5 per cent in 1961. The European ethnic groups which declined in relative size, including the French, Scandinavian and eastern European groups, were those which were not replenished by immigration.
