ABSTRACT
Rates of natural increase in the Philippines since 1945 have been among the most rapid in the world. Mindanao Island has absorbed a substantial amount of the resulting population growth. This paper estimates fertility and mortality rates and their trends for what may be called the North Mindanao Region, which grew at the annual rate of 3.12 per cent between 1939 and 1960. Underreporting makes the vital registration data of north Mindanao, inadequate for calculating fertility and mortality ratios. The crude birth rate for the Philippines is estimated by many demographers, including the present writer, at near 50 births per thousand persons of the general population. From data furnished by a Research Institute for Mindanao Culture sample survey in 1959, the present writer found a crude birth rate for Misamis Oriental Province of 47.7 births per 1,000 persons Eventually, high birth rates will of themselves generate effective pressures, in the presence of lowered death rates, for restricting family size.
