Grove, Ph. D, R. D. (n.d.). Vital Statistics Rates in the United States 1900-1940Q. Retrieved from

INTRODUCTION: The year 1940 completes a period of 41 years for which the Bureau of the Censps has compiled and published annual vital statistics reports. Starting with mortality data for only 10 States and a number of cities in 1900, the annual publications prepared by the Division of Vital Statistics have expanded both in detail of tabulation and in geographic coverage. The collection of birth statistics was initiated in 1915, and since 1933 data for both births and deaths have been available for the United States as a whole. The 1940 population census is partictiarly significant to vital statisticians, since, for the fist time in the history of the United States, national vital statistics data and the corresponding population figures necessary for adequate analysis are both available.
