Description:
In 1971 (Pre Census) an estimate was made within the Department of the number of births expected to occur in the Dublin region i.e. Dublin Co. Borough, Dun Laoghaire, and the remainder of County Dublin, for future years . The figures predicted were 29,000 births in 1976 and 32,000 births by 1981. The method for determining these projected figures was to estimate each of the following individually:- (i) Legitimate births to Dublin residents (ii ) Births occurring in Dublin but assigned outside the region (iii) Illegitimate births to Dublin mothers, the sum of these components giving the overall total. The first component, legitimate births to Dublin mothers is the most important, contributing around 75% to the total number of births occurring in Dublin. Inherent in its construction is a knowledge of the number of married women in each five year age-group of the reproductive stage i .e. 15-49, and also knowledge is required of the age specific legitimate birth rates i.e. the number of children to be expected from each age group per 1,000 married women of that age group
