The population problem is a subject which may be beyond my capacity
to deal with in any authoritative manner but on account of its very
importance the paper presented to the Society this evening may provoke
serious attention from others more qualified than I am to interpret the
significance of the figures and to suggest solutions to the problem as
it affects this country. Much could be written in support of the importance
of this question from published statements in recent years in different
countries. In our own Census of Population Reports it is stated that
we are a country of late marriages but high fertility, notwithstanding
which we are fast becoming a country of elderly people. The statistics
of the age structure of the Population in 1936 particularly at the younger
ages as compared with 10 years earlier attracted much attention. Similar
figures for ages and conjugal condition are being compiled for 1941 from
the Register of Population but the results for the whole country will
not be available for some time yet.
