7,478 Births In
State For Sept.
September's 7,478 North Caro
lina births, as compared with 7,014
during the corresponding month
last year, brought the total for
the first nine months of 1941 to
64,101. This shows an increase
of 3,468 over the 60,643 reported
through September, 1940, accord
ing to figures compiled by the State
Board of Health's division of Vital
Statistics, of which Dr. R. T. Stimp
son is the director. The rate for
no single month during the current
year has fallen below 20.4. The
September rate was 25.1.
.North Carolina deaths for the first
nine months of 1941 totaled 24,404,
which was 103 in excess of those
reported for the corresponding
period of 1940, and of the total for
this year, through September 8,893,
or 16 per cent, were infants under
a year old. During the correspond
ing period last year infant deaths
in North Carolina totaled 8,471,
giving 1941, so far, an excess of
422 over 1940. J '
There was a substantial decrease,
however, in the number of maternal
deaths -those who died in child
birth or as the result of pregnancy.
Through September, this year,
there had been 291 such deaths re
ported in the state; as compared
with 351 last year, a decrease of
60. But there has been a marked
increase in the number of children
under two years of age dying as
the result of diarrhea and enteritis.
This year's reported total, so far,
is 505, as compared with 375 last
year, an increase of 130.
