LETTER OF SUBMITTAL 



The Commonwealth of Massachusetts, 

Office of the Secretary , 
Division of Vital Statistics, Boston, May 1, 1941. 

To the Honorable Senate and House of Representatives: 

I have the honor to submit herewith, as required by Chapter 46, section 21, and 
Chapter 208, section 47, of the General Laws, the ninety-ninth annual report on 
statistics of births, marriages, divorces, and deaths in Massachusetts, for the 
calendar year 1940 in two parts; Part I, Mortahty Statistics; Part II, Statistics of 
Births, Marriages, and Divorces. The fact that deaths are reported monthly while 
births, marriages, and statistics of divorce are not required to be reported until 
March, April, and May of the year following that in which the events occur, makes 
possible the availabihty of the mortahty report earlier than the report of births, 
marriages, and divorces. Hence the presentation in two parts in one volume. 

The editorial review and the method of presentation of the statistical data were 
prepared by Arthur J. Hassett, State Registrar, in charge of the Division of Vital 
Statistics. The statistical tables were prepared under the direction of Ehzabeth 
]\I. Canty, statistician of the division. The exliibition of tabular results is restricted 
to such as are plainly of practical utility within the meaning of the statute by author- 
ity of which the tables are prepared. 

Respectfully submitted, 

Frederic W. Cook, 
Secretary of the Commonwealth,

INTRODUCTION 

History. 

Death Registration. — Massachusetts was one of the first colonies to recognize 
the importance of the registration of vital statistics, and as early as 1639 required 
the registration of births, marriages and deaths; in 1840 statutes required copies 
should be filed with the Secretary of the Commonwealth. In 1880 the registration 
area for deaths recognized by the United States Bureau of the Census, i.e., the 
States, and cities in other States, effectively enforcing satisfactory registration 
laws of all deaths registered, included but two States, Massachusetts and New 
Jersey, the District of Columbia, and a number of cities in non-registration States. 

During the period 1841 to 1940 inclusive, 3,854,806 deaths have been reported, 
filed, and tabulated in the Division of Mtal Statistics. 

The original records are on file in the cities and towns in which the events occur 
and in the city and town given as the residence of the deceased at the time of death. 

Purpose. — Death registration often gives the first intimation of pestilential 
disease, permitting health officers to attack epidemics in their incipiency. It serves 
as evidence in the inheritance of i^roperty and in the settlement of life insurance. 
It is useful in preventing crime through the restriction placed upon the disposal 
of dead human bodies, and insures a permanent and uniform record of the death 
of each individual for all purposes. 



2 P.D. 1. 

Importance of Death Records. — Where proof concerning:; deatli is needed: 

1. To prove the fact of death: I'or life-insurance clainis; for liquidation of 

estates. 

2. To prove facts about the deceased: For tracing ancestry; for names of 

husband or wife, and parents; for information on circumstances and 
cause of death; for age, sex, and race; for recording date and place of 
interment. 

3. To prove date of death: For settlement of pensions; for insurance adjust- 

ments; for general legal use. 

Mortality Statistics. — Mortality statistics, or statistics of deaths, are useful 
in showing the extent and rate of change in population j)roduced by deaths; the 
average duration of life, the relative frequency with wliich the several causes pro- 
duce death, and for their service in creating an interest in public health administra- 
tion and securing support for sanitary measures. In comparison with birth statistics 
they give useful information regarding population increase or decrease. Mortality 
statistics, however, cannot be used as an index of the j^revalence of certain diseases, 
l^ecause there is no fixed ratio between sickness and fatality. Only cases of fatal 
sickness or disease are given, while morbidity statistics include all cases, whether 
fatal or not. 

Source of Data. — Mortality statistics are based upon original data obtained 
by the registration of deaths, which is accomplished by the filing of a standard 
death certificate. 

The responsibility for seeing that a certificate is properly made out and filed 
rests primarily with the undertaker, who is required by law to present a satisfactory 
certificate of death before he may obtain a permit to remove or bury a body. The 
local boards of health are required to transmit the death certificates to the city or 
to^-n clerks who in turn record the deaths and are required to transmit certified 
copies to the Secretary of the Commonwealth on or before the tenth day of the 
month following that in which the deaths occurred. Hospitals and other institutions 
are required to obtain, when persons are received, the facts which are required for 
record in the event of the deaths of such persons. 

Occupations. — As great interest is still being shown in the study of occupations 
in connection with cause of death due to the fact that many industries have adapted 
newer types of machines that give emplojaiient to large numbers and may have 
increased occupational risks, Table 18 will be continued. This table has been pre- 
pared from the list of occupations published by the Bureau of the Census showing 
the number of those gainfully employed who died from important causes. 

Death Rates and Their Comparability. — The death rates given in this report 
are based upon the comparison of total deaths with the aggregate population. 
They are usually expressed in terms of the number of deaths per 1,000 population, 
and are calculated by dividing the total number of deaths by the population in 
thousands. This means that death rates vary with the character of the population 
and each element has its relation to the rate of mortality, and therefore, for com- 
parison with other States or countries, the make-up of the population must be 
considered. The death rate per 1,000 males is generally higher than the rate per 
1,000 females. Hence, a State having a relatively larger female population than 
another will normally show a lower death rate and a community where the very 
young or old predominate will show a higher rate than a community made up largely 
of young adults. Rates will also vary with the color and nationality of the in- 
habitants. 

Factors which seriously affect the comparability of the death rates of different 
communities are: (1) race composition; (2) the social, marital, and economic status 
of the people; (3) employment; (4) migration; and (5) the birth rate. 

Allocation. — Deaths are charged to the place of event and also are allocated 
to the place of residence of the deceased. This insures as near a true rate as pos- 
sible and has a marked effect on municipalities which are large hospital centers. 
The usual place of residence has been used as a basis for all deaths occurring out- 
side the State as well as for those in the State. Except for purposes of allocation 
former residents of Massachusetts who have died in other States, after an absence 



P.D. 1. 3 

from Massachusetts of more tlian one year, are considered as non-residents. Resi- 
dents of otlier States who have resided in Massachusetts for more than one year 
are considered as residents. In the case of institutions and jails deaths have been 
allocated to the place of residence before entrance. Such persons are regarded as 
temporary residents of these places since they did not voluntarily enter with the in- 
tention of remaining and without doubt would have returned, if discharged, to 
their usual residence. Accidental deaths have been treated in the same manner as 
those caused by sickness. While these deaths are often charged to municipalities in 
which tliey do not occur, the Division has under consideration a plan whereby these 
deaths besides being allocated to the place of residence, will also be charged to the 
place where the accident actually happened. The foregoing outline does not by any 
means cover all cases that may and will arise but will serve as an explanation of the 
method used in preparation of allocated tables. 

Number of Deaths and Death Rates. — There was an increase in the mortality 
of 1940 as compared with that of 1939, the number of deaths occurring in the State 
during the calendar year 1940 being 51,280, an increase as compared with 1939 of 
373. Based on the United States Census population of 1940 of 4,316,721, these 
deaths correspond to a rate of 11.9 per 1,000 population, being 11.4 in 1939. Deaths 
of residents of Massachusetts numbered 50,698 in 1940, resulting in a death rate of 
11.7 per 1,000 inhabitants. 

During the ten-year periods, from 1921 to 1930, inclusive, the average death rate 
of the Commonwealth was 12.4 and 1931 to 1940, inclusive, 11.5. 

This remarkable decrease in mortality has been the rule rather than the exception 
in the experiences of the other States. Since 1916 the average death rate for Massa- 
chusetts has been 13.0 per 1,000 li\^ng. 

Sex. — Of the 51,280 deaths in 1940, 26,572, or 51.8 per cent, were males, the 
percentage in 1939 being 51.7. The proportion of males in the living population, 
as shown by the United States Census of 1940, was 48.7 per cent. Expressed as a 
ratio there were 1,075 deaths of males per 1,000 deaths of females in 1940, as com- 
pared with 1,072 in 1939, 1,092 in 1938, and 1,101 in 1937. Of the 50,698 residents 
of the State who died in 1940, 26,262, or 51.8 per cent, were males. 

Table 5 on page 30, shows that the death rate of males has been consistently 
greater than the death rate for fem.ales. The death rate of the sexes has fluctuated 
considerably, reaching the maximum in 1918, when the difference was 3 per 1,000. 

Age. — Of the 50,698 deaths in 1940 of residents of the State, 2,450, or 4.8 per 
cent were of infants under 1 year of age. The rates for infant deaths in previous 
years, were 4.6 per cent in 1939, and an average of 5.3 for the rive years from 1935 
to 1939, 7.4 for the five years from 1930 to 1934 and 10.7 for the five years from 
1925 to 1929. A more detailed discussion of infant mortality may be found on 
pages 4 and 5. 

Sex and Age. — The death rate of adult males might be expected to exceed the 
rate of adult females, on account of the more dangerous occupations of the niales, 
but the excess in the death rate of male infants as compared with female infants 
has never been satisfactorily explained. Of the 2,450 decedents under 1 year of 
age in 1940, 1,395, or 56.9 per cent, were males. The ratio of n^ale to female deaths 
among the higher age periods fluctuated somewhat. The proportion of male deaths 
was the larger from 1 j'ear of age up to and including the age period 70 to 74 years 
with the exception of the 3 year age i:>eriod. From the age of 75 3'ears and ui)ward 
the number of deaths of females exceeded the deaths of males, including the rejuited 
centenarians, numbering 34, of whom 6 were males and 28 were females. The ratios 
of male deaths per 1,00() deaths of females at the various age periods in the four 
years 1937-1940 are shown in Table 8, on page 31, 

The excess of females in the population 65 years of age and over is so great that 
even though their mortality at each age period is below that of males, the absolute 
number of deaths is greater. Among the 26,262 male decedents in 1940, 1,395 or 
5.3 per cent, were under 1 year of age; among the 24,436 female decedents, 1,055 
or 4.3 per cent, were under 1 year; and among the decedents of both sexes 4.8 per 
cent were under 1 year (see Table 9, page 32).

years of aii;o and over, whose marital eoiulition \va< rei)orte(l in 1940 were inanied, 
17.9 per cent were sinjile, 34.9 per cent were widowed, l.() })er cent were divorced, 
and .1 i)er cent were unknown. An.onfi tlie nude decedents 55.7 per cent were 
n'arried. 17.8 per cent were sin«rle, 24.3 per cent were widowed, 1.2 per centjvere 
divoiced, and .2 per cent were unknown. Amonp; the female decedents 34.7 per 
cent wei'e married, 18 per cent were sinjile, 46.1 jjer cent were widowed, 1.2 per 
cent were divorced, and less than one-tenth of one per cent were unJcnown. No pre- 
cise study of the hearing; of marital condition on mortality statistics can be made, 
however,* without a detailed statement of the age distribution of the population. 
The age g;roups used in the census statistics do not coincide with the age groups 
used in the tabulation of death statistics, so that the two sets of figures cannot be 
used together. Table 10, on page 33, shows the number of deaths of males and 
females 15 years of age and over, by marital condition. 

Nativity. — Of the Massachusetts residents whose nativity was reported on the 
death certificates in 1940 nearly two-thirds (60.2 per cent) were native, and 39.5 
per cent were foreign. There w^ere three-tenths of one per cent whose nativity was 
not reported. 

Seasonal Distribution of Deaths. — The largest number of deaths during any 
month occurred in January (4,896), and the next largest number in March (4,622). 
Since the months are not of equal length, the monthly incidence must be reduced 
to a uniform basis. The average daily number of deaths for 1940 was 139. The 
months showing the highest average for the year were January (158), February 
(156), March and December (149), and April (143). Table 11, on page 33, shows 
the number of deaths in each month of 1940, in counties, and in cities having over 
50,000 inhabitants in 1940. 

Infant Mortality. 

Much credit is due to physicians, hospitals, public health officials and mothers 
for the gratifying results obtained in their campaign against infantile diseases. 
The present low rate of infant mortality, together with the steadily declining rate 
over a long period of years, is largely due to the constantly improving methods of 
infant feeding and the continued developments in community and home sanitation. 

The infant mortality for residents of the State in 1940 was 37.5 per 1,000 live 
births. This rate has been moving steadily downward being largely due to the 
reduction in deaths from gastro-intestinal, respiratory and communicable diseases. 
Reference to Table 28, on page 193, show^s in striking manner the remarkable reduc- 
tion in infant mortality, actual decrements without regard for increase in the num- 
ber of births and without regard for increase in population. 

In the ten vears from 1931 to 1940, there has been a decrease of 4.6 per cent m 
the number of live births registered. In 1940, deaths of Boston residents under 
1 year of age numbered 527 or 42.4 per 1,000 live births. The rates for previous 
years were 37.5 per cent in 1939, 43.7 in 1938, 48.5 in 1937, and 50.8 m 1936. In 
the ten years from 1931 to 1940 there has been a decrease of 548 m the number of 
live births registered. For the remainder of the State, the number of births regis- 
tered decreased 5.1 per cent during this period. The infant mortality rates for the 
State, exclusive of Boston, decreased from 65.9 per 1,000 live births in 1924 to 36.3 
in 1940, as compared with a decrease in Boston from 74.2 in 1924 to 42.4 in 1940. 
(See Table 28, on page 193.) . 

Deaths under one month and also under one year of age in each municipality 
are shown in Table 24, on pages 189 to 191. 

The infant mortality rates in municipalities having 15,000 or more inhabitants 
in 1940 are shown for the years 1933 to 1940 in Table 26, on page 192. 

The highest proportion of deaths occurs in the early period of infancy and espe- 
cially is this true of the first few days. In 1940, 1,375 deaths occurred in the first 
w^eek, constituting 56.1 per cent of all deaths under 1 year of age. On the first day 
the percentage of deaths (33.8) was higher than on any other day. In the first month 
of life there were 1,655 deaths, or 67.6 per cent of all infant deaths. 

In the first three months there were 1,942 deaths, or 79.3 per cent of all infant 
deaths. Over three-fourths, 89.2 per cent, of the infant deaths occurred in the 
first half of the year. 



P.D. 1. 5 

Over tliree-fourtlis, 86.4 per cent, of the 1,375 l)al)ies wlio died less than one week 
after l)irth, died of prematurity, conji;enital dehilit}?^, nialformations, or injuries 
received at birtli. Of the 1,512 babies who died from these causes before reaching 
the age of 1 year, 59.1 per cent died in less than one day, 78.6 per cent died in less 
than one week, and 89.4 per cent died in less than one month. Gastric and intes- 
tinal diseases which were formerly important factors in causing infant deaths have 
greatly decreased due to tlie improvement of h^^giene and popular education. These 
causes claimed 131, or 5.3 per cent of the babies who died before reaching 1 year of 
age, as compared with 3.9 ]:)er cent in 1939. Twenty-five and two-tenths i)er cent 
of the balfies who died from these causes died in less than one month after l)irth, 
16 per cent within one but less than two months after birth, and 9.9 per cent within 
two but less than three months after birth. 

The largest number of deaths of infants is due to develo})mental and wasting 
diseases*, and the figures indicate a reduction in infant mortality due to these 
causes, — from 24.1 deaths per 1,000 live births in 1933 to 20.0 in 1940. Respiratorj'^ 
diseases also caused a considerable number of deaths. Tlie number of infant deaths 
from bronchopneumonia has decreased somewhat since 1936 when there were 374 
infant deaths from this cause, 392 in 1937, 302 in 1938, 294 in 1939, and 310 in 1940. 
The principal causes of infant deaths for the years 1933 to 1940 are shown in Table 
30, page 194. 

Causes of Death. ^ 

Sources of Error in Mortality Statistics. — The chief element of error in 
mortality statistics lies in the inaccuracy of the statement of the cause of death as 
reported by the attending physician, who may not have been in a position to feel 
reasonably certain as to the nature of the terminal illness. Statements of cause of 
death are often incomplete as a result of the unintentional failure of the physician 
to state all the morbid conditions known to him which resulted in the death. Again 
the phj^sician sometimes fails to enter on the death certificate a qualifying term, 
which if given would modify the classification of the cause of death. 

It should also be borne in mind that the process of classifj'ing the thousands of 
different terms — some of them of a very indefinite or unsatisfactory character — 
under the 200 titles of the International List of Causes of Death presents man}' 
difficulties which are seldom fully appreciated by those who have not engaged in 
the work of classification. Even if each certificate of death received during 1940 
bore only a single cause, the process would present many difficulties. IMan}^ cer- 
tificates, however, bear statement of two or more causes instead of one and a sys- 
tem of selection, according to the precedents and rules of the International Com- 
mittee, has been adopted by the United States Bureau of the Census, and is used 
in the Division of Vital Statistics. Because of the complications attendant upon 
any attempt to show all primary and secondary terms in relation, it becomes neces- 
sary to base all statistical compilations of causes of death on the selection of a pre- 
ferred term. This means that when two or more morbid conditions are given on a 
certificate one of them must be selected as the cause under which the death must 
be classified. Special weight has usually been given to communicable diseases when 
combined with other causes, and assignments are made to external causes when 
serious enough to be a factor in the cause of death. 

Principal Causes. — More than two-thirds of the 50,698 resident deaths re- 
ported in 1940 were caused by diseases of the heart, cancer, cerebral hemorrhage 
(including embolism and thrombosis) pneumonia and nephritis. These diseases, 
together with tuberculosis in all forms, external causes, malformations and the 
diseases of early infancy caused 83.4 per cent of the deaths for the year. There 
were 51,280 registered deaths in 1940, the allocated rate being 11.7 and the regis- 
tered rate, 11.9. Table 19, on page 185, shows the number of residents of the State 
who died from these causes. 

Heart Disease,* as usual, w^as the leading cause of resident deaths in 1940, the 
total number being 18,148 corresponding to a rate of 420.4 per 100,000 population 
as compared with 17,604 deaths or 395.8 per 100,000 in 1939. Deaths from heart

disease, rei)()rted as luivinj»; occurred in Massachusetts niinihered 18,288 or 423.7 
j^er 100,000 |K)pulation. The great increase in the last few years was partly due 
to the fact that under the revised classification of causes of death, diseases of the 
coronar>^ artery, which were formerly classified as arterial diseases, are now classi- 
fied under diseases of the heart. 

Cancer and other Malignant Tumors. — Cancer ranked second in numerical 
im}xirtance among all the causes of death. The resident deaths from cancer were 
7,219, the rate being 167.2 per 100,000 population with cancers of the digestive 
tract and i^eritoneum claiming 48.6 per cent of these deaths, cancer of the genito- 
urinary' organs 22.4; breast 11 per cent; respirator)' system 6 per cent; buccal cavity 
and i^harynx 2.9; skin 1.4 and 7.7 per cent were of other or unspecified organs. The 
death rate from cancer has steadily risen from 89.9 in 1910, to 155.5 in 1939 and 
167.2 in 1940. It is possible that at least a part of this increase is due to more 
correct diagnosis and greater care on the part of the physicians in making rei)orts, 
but a part at least is due to the lengthened span of life, resulting in a larger number 
of people reaching the older age groups. 

Among the male deaths the per cent distribution was as follows: digestive organs 
and peritoneum 53.4; genitourinary organs 20.3; breast .3; resi)irator>' organs 10.1; 
buccal cavity and phar>'nx 5.4; skin 1.8 and other or unsi^ecified organs 8.7. The 
per cent distribution of the female deaths was as follows: digestive organs and 
{peritoneum 44.7; genitourinary organs 24.0; breast 19.8; respiratory system 2.7; 
buccal cavity and phar>mx .9; skin 1.0 and other or unspecified organs 6.9. 

Of cancer of the digestive organs and peritoneum, cancer of the stomach claimed 
the largest number of males, 17.9 per cent, while cancer of the intestines claimed 
18.6 of the females. Among the deaths from cancer of the genitourinaiy organs, 
23.3 per cent were of the prostate gland and 38.6 per cent were of the uterus. Over 
two-thirds of the deaths from cancer of the lungs were of males 73.4, while 26.6 
per cent were of females. In the buccal cavity group cancers of the phary-nx were 
responsible for the largest number of male and female deaths, being 28.6 and 6.6 
per cent, respectively. More than one-half, 58.6 per cent of the deaths from cancer 
of the skin were of males, while 41.4 per cent were females. 

Registered deaths from cancer showed an increase of 298 and a total of 7,390 in 
1940, corresponding to a death rate of 171.2 as compared with 159.5 in 1939. Of 
the resident deaths from cancer more than one-half, 53.2 per cent were of females. 

Cerebral Hemorrhage, Cerebral Embolism and Thrombosis* were the 
causes of 4,642 deaths of residents, or 107.5 per 100,000 population. The death rate 
from these diseases has fluctuated somewhat, being 97.5 in 1936, 98.8 in 1937, 97 in 
1938, and 101.3 in 1939. These diseases caused 4,661 registered deaths, correspond- 
ing to a rate of 108.0 per 100,000 population. 

Pneumonia (including bronchopneumonia) caused 2,661 resident deaths in 
1940, or 61.6 per 100,000 population, compared with 3,126 deaths, or 70.3 per 
100,000 population in 1939. It also was responsible for 2,676 deaths occurring 
in the State with a rate of 62.0 per 100,000 population. 

Nephritis,* all forms, was the cause of 3,016 deaths of Massachusetts residents 
in 1940, corresponding to a rate of 69.9 per 100,000 population, as compared with 
65.6 in 1939, 68 in 1938, 68.5 in 1937, 71.2 in 1936, and an average rate of 80.4 
for the five years from 1931 to 1935. There were 2,905 deaths caused by chronic 
nephritis*, and 63 by acute nephritis. Of the registered deaths 2,929 were from 
chronic nephritis* and 65 from acute nephritis, with a total of 3,046 for all forms 
of nephritis and a death rate of 70.6 per 100,000 population. 

Tuberculosis in its various forms claimed 1,598 victims in 1940, of whom 1,484 
died from tuberculosis of the respiratory system*. Deaths due to the latter cause 
constituted 3 per cent of all resident deaths during the year, the rate being 34.4 
per 100,000 population. In 1910 the death rate from tuberculosis of the respiratory 
system was 133.2. Since then the decline has been continuous from year to year 
with the exception of 1918 when the rate was 130. However, an increase of .2 per 
cent per 100,000 population has been noted in 1933. Tuberculosis (all forms) was 
responsible for 1,637 deaths registered in Massachusetts including 1,517 deaths 
from tuberculosis of the respiratory system*. The rates for the latter disease 
were 3 per cent of all deaths during the year and 35.1 per 100,000 population. 



P.D. 1. -7 

Diabetes* was the cause of 1,570 deaths of Massachusetts residents in 1940, 
an increase of 04 from those reported in 1939 and was responsible for a rate of 
36.4 per 100,000 popuhition. The rate from tliis disease lias sliown a steady increase 
for the past five years with the exception of 1935 and 1938 wlien the rates were 29.9 
and 32.4 per 100,000 iK)pulation, res})ectively. The rate was 33.9 in 1937 and 31.7 
in 1936. Almost two-tliirds, 65.5 per cent, of the resident deaths from diabetes 
were of females, with tlie a^e periods 65 to 74 years having the greatest number, 
25.3 per cent; of the males 13 per cent were in these age periods also. This disease 
attacked persons 50 years of age and over most se\^erely and these age groups had 
a rate of 92 per cent of diabetic deaths, 66.4 per cent being females and 33.6 per 
cent males. Deaths from diabetes reported as having occurred in the State, num- 
bered 1,575 or 36.5 per 100,000 population. 

Congenital Debility* and Malformations*, including premature birth, 
caused 1,264 resident deaths in 1940, corresponding to a rate of 29.4 per 100,000 
})0})ulation. The death rates from these causes have shown a steady decline from 
109.2 in 1910 (with the exception of 1912, 114.2). There were 1,283 registered 
deaths from these diseases, resulting in a rate of 29.7 per 100,000 population. 

Alcoholism and Cirrhosis of the Liver* (specified as alcoholic, etc.) were re- 
sponsible for 579 resident deaths in 1940, corresponding to a rate of 13.4 per 100,000 
population. Of these 178 were due to alcoholism which is a decrease of 20 over 
those reported in 1939, corresponding to a rate of 4.1 per 100,000 population. These 
diseases caused 587 deaths in Massachusetts with a rate of 13.6 per 100,000 popu- 
lation. Alcoholism claimed 178 of these, or 4.1 per 100,000 population. 

Maternal Mortality.* Deaths from puerperal causes of residents of the State 
in 1940 totalled 181, corresponding to a rate of 27.2 per 10,000 confinements. This 
rate was a decrease from 1939, the rate being 33 and 36.5 for 1938. 

Puerperal septicemia* was responsible for 72 resident deaths including 21 due 
to abortion with septic conditions, the rates for this cause in 1940 being 10.8 per 
10,000 confinements. In 1939 the rate was 10 and in 1938, 9.6. Of the deaths from 
these diseases, 26 were from 20 to 29 years of age, 4 were under 20 years of age and 
the remainder, 42, were from 30 to 44 years of age. 

Diarrhea and Enteritis* caused 209 deaths of residents in 1940, or 4.8 per 
100,000 population. Sixty and eight-tenths per cent of the total number of deaths 
charged to these causes in 1940 were of infants under 2 years of age. The rates from 
this cause of all ages were 5.9 in 1936, 5.2 in 1937, 5.1 in 1938, and 4.4 in 1939. 
During 1940 registered deaths totalled 216 from these causes, or 5.0 per 100,000 
population. The number of infants under 2 years of age was 128 or 59.3 per cent 
of the total number claimed by these diseases. 

Principal Communicable Causes. (See Table 20.) The deaths from epideniic 
and infectious diseases have shown a great decline in the last 25 years. While 
certain of these diseases have fluctuated considerably during this period they have, 
on the whole, shown a steady decrease. 

Influenza was responsible for 147 deaths of Massachusetts residents, or 3.4 per 
100,000 inhabitants, as compared with 6.4 in 1936, 9.8 in 1937, 3.5 in 1938, and 
5.2 in 1939. The number of registered deaths was 151, or 3.5 per 100,000 popula- 
tion. In 1918 there were 13,783 deaths from this cause, corresponding to a rate of 
352.7 per 100,000 population. Since 1921 this rate has fluctuated from 3.4 in 1940 
to 27.9 in 1929. 

Whooping Cough,* one of the principal epidemic maladies of childhood, was 
responsible for 22 deaths of both adults and children, the number of registered 
deaths being the same, or .5 per 100,000 population. This is a decrease from 1939 
of .5 per cent. 

Measles,* another childhood disease, caused 11 resident deaths in 1940, or .3 
per 100,000 population. This rate was .4 in 1939, .3 in 1938, .6 in 1937, and .8 in 
1936. The total number and death rate for deaths occurring in Massachusetts were 
the same. 



8 P.D. 1. 

Scarlet Fever,* another epidemic disease of childliood, was the cause of 19 deaths 
in 1940, c'orresi)()ndinfz; to a rate of .4 per 100,000 population. These rates have 
chan«>;cd from year to year during the period 1910 to 1940, the highest being 5.6 
in 1920 and the lowest, .3 in 1939. The nuMil)er and rate for registered deaths were 
20 and .5, respectively, in 1940. 

Diphtheria and Croup* — which are classed together in the statistics, but 
practically all of which arc dij)htheria — number 8, or .2 {)er 100,000 population. 
There has been a decided decrease in this disease since 1900 when the number of 
deaths was 1,475, with a corresponding rate of 52.6 per 100,000 inhabitants. This 
rate was .3 in 1939, .4 in 1938 and 1937, and .6 in 193f). The total and rate for 
deaths registered in the State were the same. 

Epidemic Cerebrospinal Meningitis claimed 15 victims in 1940, as compared 
with 17 in 1939, 18 in 1938, 72 in 1937, and 100 in 1936. The rate for this cause was 
.3 j:>er 100,000 population. This disease was responsible for the same number of 
registered deaths. 

Encephalitis Lethargica, commonly known as sleeping sickness, is a com- 
parativelv new disease and has varied little in the last five years, the number of 
deaths in 1940 being 10, 7 in 1939, 19 in 1938, and 14 in 1937 and 1936. The regis- 
tered deaths had the same total in 1940. 

Dysentery caused 8 deaths in 1940, also being responsible for the same number 
of registered deaths. There were 11 in 1939, 19 in 1938, and 10 in 1937 and 1936. 

Typhoid Fever* has shown a steady decline since 1910, having dropped from 
12.2 in that year to .2 in 1939 and 1940. This decline is greater, relatively, than 
that shown for any other important cause of death. The total number of deaths 
due to typhoid fever in 1940 was 8, as compared with 11 in 1939 and 1938, 13 in 
1937, and 10 in 1936. The number and death rate for registered deaths were 7 and 
.2, respectively, during 1940. 

Acute Poliomyelitis* has shown a decrease for 1940, the number of deaths 
being 2, or less than one-tenth of 1 per 100,000 population, as compared with .1 in 
1939, 2 in 1938, .5 in 1937, and .2 in 1936. Deaths reported as having occurred 
in the State had the same number and rate. 

There were no deaths from Smallpox in 1940. 

Violent Deaths. Death rates from violence during the past five years per 
100,000 population were 83.6 in 1936, 84.9 in 1937, 81.1 in 1938, 76.0 in 1939, and 
76.8 in 1940. The death rate from violence was 77.9 per 100,000 population for 
registered deaths in 1940. 

Resident deaths due to Railroad Accidents and Injuries* totalled 46 in 1940, 
and corresponded to a rate of 1.1 per 100,000 population. The rates for the previous 
years were 1.1 in 1939, 1.2 in 1938, 1.5 in 1937, and 1.7 in 1936. Registered deaths 
were 47 in 1940 with the same rate. 

Resident deaths resulting from Street-car Accidents and Injuries* numbered 
12, or .3 per 100,000 population. The registered deaths had the same total and rate. 

Automobile Accidents and Injuries* caused 646 deaths of residents in 1940, 
including 9 deaths from automobile and railroad collisions, and no deaths from 
automobile and street-car collisions. The rate was 15 per 100,000 population, as 
compared with 14.2 in 1939, 14.9 in 1938, 19.9 in 1937, and 20.3 in 1936. These 
accidents caused 661 deaths registered in Massachusetts in 1940, or 15.3 per 100,000 
population. Of these, 10 deaths were from automobile and railroad collisions and 
no deaths from automobile and street-car collisions. No accurate data are available 
for measuring the death rate per number of automobiles in use, as the statistics 
compiled by the Dei)artment of Public \\'orks show the number of machines 
registered, and thus contain dui:)lications, since one machine may be registered more 
than once in a calendar year. It is probable, however, that the increase has not been 
so rapid as that of the number of machines in use. 

Effects of Heat. — In 1940 the resident deaths from this cause numbered 3. 
In 1939 there were 14 deaths; in 1938, 11; in 1937, 72; and in 1936, 13. The total 
deaths occurring in the State from this cause were the same in 1940. The highest 



P.D. 1. ,9 

temperature recorded in 1940 was 95 degrees on July 30. The highest tem- 
perature recorded at the Weather Bureau of the United States Department of 
Agriculture since 1900 was 104 degrees on July 4, 1911. The next highest tem- 
perature was 103 degrees on July 22, 1926. 

Deaths of residents caused by Machinery Accidents* in 1940 numbered 16, or

The causes of deaths of males and females for each month for the Commonwealth 
for the complete International List of Causes of Death with certain subdivisions 
are shown in Table 13, on pages 35 to 57. The causes denoted by letters, shown 
separately in indented type. Table 13, are a part of the total cause shown in the 
International List. Ages, grouped in five year periods, are shown in Table 14, on 
pages 58 to 101. For comparative purposes those residents of other states dying in 
Massachusetts are shown in Table 15 by months and age periods according to the 
International List while those of residents of Massachusetts dying out of the State 
are siiown in Table 16. In Table 17, on pages 136 to 162, the deaths are showTi for 
58 causes and groups of causes for each county and municipality. 

For the Commonwealth as a whole the deaths and death rates for the seven years 
1934 to 1940 are shown for the 44 causes and groups of causes in the Abridged 
International List in Table 21, on pages 186 and 187. The relation of this list to 
the Detailed International List is shown in the Appendix. In addition to the above 
presentations, certain other tables showing the causes of death are presented on 
pages 188 to 199. 

DEATHS INVESTIGATED BY MEDICAL EXA.MIXERS. 

Source of Data. — The statistics of death investigated by medical examiners 
published in this report are based ujjon annual returns made by medical examiners 
and associates to the Secretary of the Commonwealth of deaths supposedly due to 
violence, the cause and manner of which have been investigated during the year. 
Deaths supposedly due to violence include not only deaths caused directly or in- 
directly by traumatism (including resulting septicemia), and by the action of chem- 
ical (drugs and poisons), thermal, or electrical agents, and deaths following abor- 
tion, but also deaths from diseases resulting from injury or infection related to 
occupation, the sudden deaths of persons not disabled by recognized disease, and 
those of persons found dead. 

Medical examiners are often called upon to view cases in which the death was 
not due to violence (heart disease, apoplexy, etc.) but where the death was simply 
sudden or where no phj^sician had been in recent attendance. Medical examiners 
are also reciuired to certify that they have viewed bodies to be cremated, and to 
make personal inquiry into the cause and manner of death. 

Number of Deaths Investigated. — The number of deaths investigated by the 
medical examiners in 1940 was 10,598, or 20.7 per cent of the total number of deaths 
which occurred during the year, as compared with 10,353 deaths in 1939, or 20.3 
per cent of the total number of deaths. Almost two-thirds (64.9 per cent) of these 
deaths were of males. Of the deaths investigated by medical examiners, 3,161, or 



10 PD 1. 

29.8 per cent, were reported us due to violence, vvhile anionfi; tlie deutlis returned to 
the registrars, 3,804 were re|)<)rted as due to violence. 

The lart!;e^t nuniher of cases investigated hy medical exaiiuners ni 1940 was in 
Suffolk ( ounty, 2,359, as compared with 2,523 in 1939. Of the deaths investigated 
in Suffolk Countv, 732, or 31 per cent, were reported as due to violence (see Table 
39, pages 20() and 207). 

Autopsies. — Autopsies were made in 1,012, or 9.5 [yer cent, of the cases investi- 
gated hy the medictil examiners in 1940, as compared with 8.6 per cent in 1939, 9.1 
per cent in 1938, 10.2 per cent in 1937, and 9.3 i^er cent in 1936. 

The highest promrtion of autopsies was in Suffolk County where 24 i)er cent of 
the views were autopsied, there being 22.8 per cent in 1939. Table 40, on pages 206 
and 207 shows the number of views and the number of autopsies in each county in 
each year from 1931 to 1940, and the number and \yeT cent of views auto[)sied for 
the ten-year period, 1931 to 1940. 

Cause of Death. — Over one-half (57.6 per cent) of the deaths viewed by medical 
examiners in 1940 were from causes not due to violence, 29.8 per cent were due to 
violence, and 1.1 per cent were stillbirths. One thousand, two hundred and nineteen 
or 11.5 per cent of the views were for cremations i . u re oiq 

Deaths from causes not due to violence numbered 6,099, of which 5,913 were 
from natural causes and 168 were due to alcoholism. 

Deaths due to violence numbered 3,161, of which 2,499 were due to accident 
or negligence, 593 were suicides, and 69 were homicides . .,. i, 

Of the 2 499 deaths due to accident or negligence, 1,106 were due to falls, blowss 
and falling bodies, 614 were due to automobile accidents, 9 of which were railroad 
and automobile accidents, 213 resulted from drowning, 51 were due to railroad 
accidents, and 484 to other causes. There were no street-car and automobile 
collisions. 

Suicides numbered 593, or 18.8 per cent of the deaths due to vi^olence. Suicides 
committed by the use of illuminating and other gases 173, and by hanging or 
strangulation, 130, constituted more than one-half (51.1 per cent) of the total 
number The number of suicides by firearms was 109, by poisons, 59, by drowning, 
55, and other methods, 67. Almost three-fourths (74.9 per cent) of the suicides 

were males

49 vears of age, 90, and among the female suicides the largest numbers were from 
40 to 49 years of age, 35, and 50 to 59 years of age, 34. The most common method 
of committing suicide was by poisonous gas. 

Homicides numbered 69, of which 24 were by firearms, 12 wfe by cutting or 
piercing instruments, 29 by other means, and 4 were cases of infanticide. Ot the

INTRODUCTION. 

Birth Registration. — Birth registration has been compulsory in Massachusetts 
since Colonial times. It was one of the first States to be included in the registration 
area of the United States Census Bureau. Probably no State claims 100 per cent 
birth registration ; but the results in Massachusetts on the whole are considered to 
be far above the average and efforts are continuallj^ being made for its improvement. 

The physician* in attendance at the birth of a child is required, within forty- 
eight hours, to give notice and make a complete return within fifteen daj^s of the 
facts required for record to the clerk of the town of birth. Parents, within forty 
days, are required to give notice to the registration official of children born to them. 

In addition to the above, persons in charge of a hospital, almshouse, or other 
institution, public or private, are required to give, on or before the fifth day of 
each month, notice to the town clerk of every birth occurring among the persons 
in such institution during the preceding month. The law also provides that the 
clerk of each town may annually in January ascertain the facts required for record 
of all children born in his town during the preceding year and resident therein. 

Returns are made in the first instance to the local clerks of the city or town in 
which the birth occurred with the exception of Boston where the City Registrar is 
the official in charge. 

The records on file in the Division of Vital Statistics are attested copies of the 
originals filed with local officials. The law has required the filing at this central 
record office since 1841. During this time 5,656,978 births have been filed and 
indexed. Since the establishment of the office of State Registrar of Vital Sta- 
tistics in 1918, a systematic campaign has been carried on to obtain prompt and 
complete compliance with the birth registration laws. People are generally be- 
ginning more and more to realize the importance of birth records, so complete 
registration should soon be an accomplished fact. 

Importance of Birth Records. — Records of birth are becoming more important 
every day. Government and defense agencies as well as many other civil bureaus 
are demanding proof of citizenship through birth certificates. As Massachusetts is 
one of the few states that have records previous to 1912 there is a great demand at 
all times. This great demand for birth records will continue as they are also required 
for Old Age Assistance and Social Security and as proof of citizenship for defense 
purposes. 

There is hardly a relation of life, social, legal, or economic, in which the evidence 
furnished by an accurate registration of births may not prove to be of the greatest 
value, not only to the individual, but also to the public at large. It is not only an 

* Midwives are not recognized in Massachusetts. The courts have held that the practice of midwifery 
is the practice of medicine, and as there is no provision under the law for licensing midwives, any one who 
practices midwifery is violating the medical registration laws.

act of civilization to register Birth Certificates, but also good business, for they 
are frequently used in many practical ways: 

1. As evidence to prove the age and legitimacy of heirs; 

2. As proof of age to determine the validity of a contract entered into by an 
alleged minor; 

3. As evidence to establish age and proof of citizenship and descent; in order 
to vote; 

4. As evidence to establish the right of admission to the professions and to many 
public offices; 

5. As evidence of legal age to marr^^; 

6. As evidence to prove the pension claims of widows and orphans; 

7. As evidence to determine the liability of parents for the debts of a minor; 

8. As evidence in the administration of estates, the settlement of insurance and 
pensions ; 

9. As evidence to prove the irresponsibility of children under age for crime and 
misdemeanor, and various other matters in the criminal statute; 

10. As evidence in the enforcement of laws relating to education and to child 
labor; 

11. As evidence to determine the relations of guardians and wards; 

12. As proof of citizenship in order to obtain a passport; 

13. As evidence in the claim for exemption from or the right to jury and militia 
service. 

Copies of records of births occurring during the preceding year are required by 
statute to be forwarded annually to the Di\'ision of Vital Statistics but many of 
the clerks co-operate with the Division by making periodic returns during the year. 

After the statutorj^ period has elapsed for filing copies of the records with the 
Department of the Secretary of the Commonwealth, no delayed returns or correc- 
tions are accepted unless by a deposition made by the parents, supported by written 
evidence at the time of birth, or by deposition of the attending physician at the 
time of birth, or based upon a writing made at the time by a person since deceased 
charged with making the return in the first instance. As the evidential value of a 
record depends for its authenticity upon the fact that it is made contemporaneously 
with the happening of the event recorded, the registrars are required to exercise 
considerable care by requesting written evidence made soon after the time of birth 
before accepting delayed returns, particularly if it is some years after the birth 
occurred. This holds true of corrections which can only be made in accordance 
with the facts as they actually existed at the time the birth occurred, with the 
exception of an illegitimate child who is legitimatized through the subsequent 
marriage of its parents; in these cases the record may be amended, so that the child 
will appear on the record as the legitimate offspring of its parents. 

As a means of eliminating errors from physicians' returns of births, many local 
registrars are sending a supplemental report of the physician's return to the parents 
for their approval; and when the certificate is returned properly signed by a parent, 
it is filed with the physician's certificate. This is a splendid system as it eliminates 
any claim later that an error has been made in the return of birth. Many cities 
and towns have already adopted this follow-up system, and an attempt is being 
made to institute this method throughout Massachusetts. 

Adoptions. — Chapter 97, Acts of 1938 amended the statute relating to adoptions 
and provides that legally adopted children may have their birth records amended 
so as to appear as the natural children of the adoptive parents. Illegitimate 
children who have had their names legally changed may have their birth records 
amended to agree with the name decreed by court. 

Certain Records Impounded. — Returns and records of illegitimate and ab- 
normal sex births are impounded by statute from inspection. The law prohibits the 
issuance of copies of such records to the general pubUc. These records can be in- 
spected or copies issued only to the child, the mother, attorney for the child, its legal 
guardian or to others by order of the court. 

Allocation. — Births are charged to the place of the event and also are allocated 
to the place of residence of the parents. This insures as near a true rate as possible 



210 P.D. 1. 

and has a marked effect on municipalities which are large hospital centers. These 
cities and towns in the past have been charged with a high rate and small com- 
munities without hospital facilities have shown a low rate. The usual place of 
residence has been used as a basis for all births occurring outside the State as well 
as for those in the State. In the case of institutions, births have been allocated to 
the place of residence before entrance. 

Live Births. — In the Commonwealth in 1940 there were 66,192 live births, 
registered, an increase of 2,885, or 4.6 per cent as compared with the number regis- 
tered in 1939. There was an increase in 1940 of 3,455 or 7.2 per cent in the number 
of infants born to native parents; a decrease of 541, or 10.8 per cent to foreign-born 
parents; and also a decrease of 28 or .3 per cent, to mixed parents, namely, one 
parent native, the other foreign-born, as compared with 1939. The allocated births 
numbered 65,369 for 1940. 

Birth Rate. — In proportion to the total population, the total births registered 
were equivalent to a rate of 15.3 per 1,000 population, and is an increase of 1.1 per 
1,000 over that of 1939. This rate is also 1.1 per 1,000 above the average for the 
five years 1935 to 1939. The allocated births for 1940 raised the birth rate to 15.1. 

Changes in Birth Rate. — The birth rate for the Commonwealth attained the 
highest point on record, 30.2 in the year 1857. Since then the rate, although fluc- 
tuating considerably, has shown a considerable decline, and a steady decline since 
1924, notwithstanding an improvement in the registration. Although the birth 
rate has been smaller in recent years, the infant death rate has also declined, the 
infant mortality rate for 1940 being the second lowest ever recorded, so that the 
number of babies who survive the dangers of infancy is becoming steadily greater. 
This fact is strikingly shown in the infant mortality tables. 

Stillbirths. — The Legislature has enacted legislation (Chap. 100, Acts of 1936) 

defining stillborn children for the purposes of Vital Statistics: "A stillborn child 
shall be deemed to be a foetus born after a period of gestation of not less than five 
months, in which foetus there is no attempt at respiration, no action of heart and 
no movement of voluntarj^ muscle — ." In the past there has been no statute 
defining a stillbirth, consequently many returns have been made which, under this 
definition, would not have been returned. As the statute now clearly defines a 
stillbirth and precludes any misunderstanding as to what returns should be made, 
there should be fewer returns of stillbirths. 

Stillbirths allocated in 1940 number 1,774. The rate per 1,000 live births allo- 
cated was 28.2 in 1939; 27.7 in 1938; 28.5 in 1937; and 29.7 in 1936. The rate for 
1940 is 27.1. 

Birth Rates, Highest. — The six municipalities having 15,000 inhabitants or 
more showing the highest registered birth rates in 1940 are: Norwood, 30.3; Mil- 
ford, 28.6; ^^eymouth, 28.0; Framingham, 26.5; Winthrop, 26.2; and Attleboro 
25.5. 

Variations in the birth rates of different communities may be partially accounted 
for by differences in the proportions of married women of child-bearing age residing 
therein, and by the presence of hospitals to which expectant mothers go from neigh- 
boring cities and towns in order to take advantage of the best medical advice and 
obstetrical care during pregnancy and childbirth. The allocated birth rates help 
to substantiate this statement. The communities showing the highest rates are: 
Weymouth, 18.4; Everett, 17.6; Braintree, 17.3; Cambridge, 17.2; Somer\dlle, 17.2; 
and Waltham, 16.9. Cambridge which showed the highest registered rate (22.6) 
of any place in the State of over 100,000 population has the same rate as Somerville 
(17.2) through the allocation of births. 

Sex Proportion at Birth. — It has never been determined whether the higher 
proportion of masculine than of feminine births is the result of definite causes or not. 
Registered births of males in 1940 numbered 34,032 and those of females 32,160, 
corresponding to a ratio of 1,058 male births to 1,000 female births. Allocated 
births numbered 33,634 males and 31,735 females in 1940, with a ratio of 1,060 
male to female births. 



P.D. 1. 211 

Nativity of Parents. — The number of registered births where both parents were 
native (51,317) exceeded the number of births where both parents were foreign-born 
(4,471) by 46,846, or 1,047.8 per cent in 1940. Children of mixed parents (one parent 
native and one parent foreign-born) numbered 10,404 in 1940 as compared with 
10,432 in 1939. Allocated births numbered 50,616 children born of native parents, 
4,439 of foreign parents and 10,314 of mixed parentage. 

The proportion of children born of native parents declined from 1890 until 1910, 
since then, the proportion has steadily increased. In 1940 the proportion was 77.5 
for registered births and 77.4 per cent for allocated births. 

The proportion of children born of parents one of whom was native and the other 
foreign-born was 15.7 for the registered and 15.8 for the allocated births in 1940 as 
compared with 16.5 in 1939 for the registered births and 16.6 for the allocated births. 

Plural Births. — In 1940 there were 636 cases of plural births (allocated), 625 
cases of twins and 11 cases of triplets, or 9.6 pairs of twins per 1,000 live births 
(allocated), and two-tenths of one case of triplets. 

Natural Increase. — The excess of the birth rate over the death rate shows the 
ratio at w^hich the community is reproducing itself by natural increases. In every 
year since the compilation of birth statistics was started the birth rate has been 
higher than the death rate. 

The rate of natural increase for 1940 was 3.4 per 1,000 population for registered 
births and averaged 2.6 for the five years 1935 to 1939. The rate of increase was 
the same for allocated births. 

Notwithstanding the decline in the birth rate in recent years, the number of 
births is greatly in excess of the number of deaths; and this fact coupled with the 
steady decrease in infant mortality, has resulted in a net gain in the natural increase 
in population. The excess of births over deaths amounted to 24.4 per cent in 1939; 
26.5 per cent in 1938; 19.0 in 1937; 18.9 in 1936; and 25.3 in 1935. The excess of 
registered births over registered deaths in 1940 was 14,912, or 29.1 per cent, while 
the increase of allocated births over allocated deaths was 14,671, or 28.9 per cent. 

For comparisons previous to 1900 relative to the natural increase from 1851, and 
for figures from that date up to and includmg 1919, reference may be made to the 
Annual Report of Vital Statistics of Massachusetts for the year ending December 
31, 1919, Public Document No. 1.

INTRODUCTION. 

Marriage Registration. — The public registration of marriages has been required 
for many years in Massachusetts. Records of marriage are made in the first instance 
in the cities and towns of the State where the contracting parties dwell and if the 
ceremony is solemnized in a town other than where the parties reside, in the town 
where the ceremony is performed. 

Since 1841 it has been required that copies of these records be forwarded annually 
to the Secretary of the Commonwealth, but many City and Town Clerks co-operate 
by making periodic returns throughout the year. From 1841 to 1940, inclusive, 
there have been 5,107,356 marriages reported, recorded and tabulated in this 
department. 

Source of Data. — The marriage statistics in this report are compiled from 
attested copies of the records of marriages recorded in every city and town. Per- 
sons intending to be joined in marriage in Massachusetts must file a notice of in- 
tention in the town in which they respectively dwell, and this notice of intention 
must contain the facts required for record and be sworn to by each of the parties 
to the marriage. If a marriage is performed in a town other than the town issuing 
the license, a copy of the license is required to be made and forwarded by the clergy- 
man or magistrate to the clerk of the municipality in which the ceremony was 
performed. Five days after the notice of intention has been filed the marriage 
license may be issued with all the facts set forth in the notice of intention which 
are required for record. This certificate is presented to the clergyman or magistrate 
before whom the marriage is performed, and the facts as to the ceremony are certi- 
fied by that person. Between the first and tenth days of the month following the 
ceremony the license or licenses must be returned to the office or offices issuing the 
same. 

Solemnization. — A marriage may be solemnized in any place within the Com- 
monwealth by a minister of the gospel who resides in the Commonwealth, or, who 
if a non-resident is the pastor of a church or denomination duly established in the 
Commonwealth and who is recognized by his church or denomination as duly 
ordained and in good and regular standing as a minister of such church or denomina- 
tion; by a rabbi of the Israelitish faith, duly licensed by a congregation of said faith 
established in the Commonwealth, who has filed with the clerk or registrar of the 
city or town where such congregation is established a certificate of the establishment 
of the synagogue therein, the date of his appointment thereto, and of the term of his 
engagement; by a justice of the peace if he is also clerk or assistant clerk of a city 
or town, or a registrar or assistant registrar, in the city or town where he holds 
such office, or, if he is also clerk or assistant clerk of a court, in the city or town 
where the court is authorized to be held, or, if he has been designated as a justice 
of the peace to solemnize marriages in the city or town where he resides; and it may 
be solemnized among Friends or Quakers according to the usages of their societies; 
and a specified marriage may be performed by a non-resident clergyman com- 
missioned by the Governor in accordance with the provisions of Chap. 102 of the 
Acts of 1926; but no person shall solemnize a marriage in the Commonwealth unless 
he can read and write the English language. 



P.D. 1. 231 

When Massachusetts residents go into another state to be married and return to 
live in this Commonwealth they are required within seven days after their return 
to file a declaration of their marriage with the clerk of the town where either of 
them resided at the time of their marriage. A penalty is provided by statute for 
non-compliance with the law. 

Since laws of various States now provide for blood tests as a requirement before 
marriage there have been many marriages of non-residents in Massachusetts. 
The number of non-residents coming into Massachusetts has greatly increased in 
recent years. This may be to avoid physical examination in the various States as 
Massachusetts has not passed a law to require premarital physical examination. 
Table 61 has been prepared to show the number of non-residents and the States in 
which the parties reside. 

Accuracy. — The registration of marriages presents fewer difficulties than the 
registration of birth and death records and the statistics should be nearly 100 per 
cent perfect. 

Every precaution has been taken to see that the statutes pertaining to the solem- 
nization of marriage are strictly enforced, but as there is no public registration of 
ministers of the gospel in ]\Iassachusetts, it is not always possible to get in touch 
with the persons responsible for making returns of marriages solemnized by them. 
To guard against the possibility of marriages being performed on one license where 
two are required, on an out-of-state license, or on a license that has become invalid 
because of lapse of time, a circular setting forth the requirements before and after 
solemnizing a marriage has been prepared, together with a copy of the marriage laws 
and these are forwarded, upon request, to all persons interested, and are sent to the 
city and town clerks, together with posters setting forth the legal impediments to 
marriage, which are required to be posted in their offices. 

The errors in solemnizing and returning a record of marriage, if any, are due to 
the lack of information as to the requirements of the statute rather than to any 
wilful attempt to evade the requirements of the law. 

Marriage licenses issued to residents are valid throughout the Commonwealth, 
regardless of the residence of either party and many marriages are performed in 
cities and towns other than the place where either party lived. Persons who do 
not reside in the Commonwealth must file their intention with the clerk of the 
city or town where they propose to have the marriage solemnized and the marriage 
must be solemnized in that particular municipality. 

The principal source of error in the records of marriage comes about through the 
carelessness or ignorance of one of the parties in filing the notice of intention as to 
the facts concerning the other party. Therefore, it sometimes happens that rec- 
ords for the same marriage coming from different towns do not contain the same 
information. Names and other facts will be at variance. These certificates are 
compared in the Division of Vital Statistics and every effort is made to have the 
certificates agree, but considerable confusion and delay follow from this situation. 

Purpose. — The practical purposes of marriage records are: 

1. As evidence to establish dower and curtesy rights of husband and wife. 

2. To prove legality as to claims of inheritance. 

3. As evidence upon which to base subsequent records concerning the parties. 

4. For Governmental pension purposes. 

5. For pensions under Employees Pension Laws. 

6. For insurance, pension and retirement purposes. 

7. To establish legal settlement for public aid and the settlement of dependent 
children of parents. 

8. For naturalization and passport purposes. 

9. To prove legitimacy of children.

INTRODUCTION. 

Causes for Divorce. — Causes for which divorce from the bonds of matrimony 
may be granted in Massachusetts under the provisions of Chapter 208, Sections 1 
and 2 of the General Laws, are as follows: — 

1. Adultery. 

2. Impotency. 

3. Desertion for three consecutive years next prior to the filing of the libel. 

4. Gross and confirmed habits of intoxication caused by the voluntary and ex- 
cessive use of intoxicating liquor, opium or other drugs. 

5. Cruel and abusive treatment. 

6. Neglect to provide. 

7. Sentence to imprisonment at hard labor for five years or more. 

A marriage may be declared void in consequence of violation of the provisions of 
the laws concerning marriage; that is, a separation may be granted because of the 
demonstration of conditions obtaining at the time of, or previous to, the alleged 
marriage, which show that there never was a legal marriage. 

Source of Data. — The statistics of divorce presented in this report are com- 
piled from returns made to the Secretary of the Commonwealth annually by the 
clerks of courts and registers of probate for the several counties. 

In Massachusetts there is no central record office for divorces, the statistics only 
being returned as stated above. The records remain with the clerks or registers. 

Previous to 1922 the superior court only had jurisdiction in such matters. Under 
the provisions of General Laws, Tercentenary Edition, Chapter 208, the probate 
court now has concurrent jurisdiction with the superior court to hear libels for 
divorce and to determine the same in a similar manner. 

Applications for Divorce. — The courts granted over 4 petitions out of every 5 
filed. This proportion fluctuated considerably during the twenty-five years from 
1916 to 1940 the highest proportion of applications being granted in 1937 and 1939 
(89.9 per cent), and the lowest proportion in 1929 (71.1 per cent). During this 
entire period 85.3 per cent of all applications were granted, .5 per cent were refused, 
and 14.2 per cent were dismissed. 

Contested Cases. — Of the total number of applications for divorces during 
the twenty-five years from 1916 to 1940, only 22.1 per cent were contested. In 
1940, of the 4,966 applications for divorce, only 1,345, or 27.1 per cent, were con- 
tested, and of the 4,502 divorces granted, 1,071 or 23.8 per cent, were contested. 
The proportion of contested cases is the same (23.8) for divorces granted to both 
husband and wife. 

Number of Divorces. — Divorces granted in 1940 numbered 4,502 an increase 
of 77, or 1.7 per cent more than the number granted in 1939, and 81 more than 
the average number granted for the five year period 1935 to 1939. 

Divorce Rates. — The number of divorces granted per 100,000 population was 
104.3 as compared with 99.5 in 1939, 103.9 in 1938, 106.4 in 1937, and 98.4 in 1936. 



P.D. 1. 245 

Divorce rates based on the married population, i.e., the number of divorces per 
100,000 married popuhition, are more significant than rates based upon the total 
population, because of the elimination of possible variations in the proportion 
married, and because of the fact that divorce can arise only among the married. 
Rates calculated in this manner are shown in Table 65, page 261, for the census 
years 1910 to 1935. In this table the number of divorces shown for the census 
years 1910 to 1935 is not the actual number in that year, but the annual average 
for the five-year period of which the census year is the median. This method 
eliminates any peculiarities in the census year which may have affected divorce 
and makes the figures more typical of the period as a whole. 

Party to Which Granted. — Over two-thirds (74.2 per cent) of the total num- 
ber of divorces in the period l'-16 to 1940 were granted to the wife. In other 
words, divorces obtained by the wife are more than twice as numerous as those 
obtained by the husband. It may be that husbands more often than wives give 
occasion for divorce but the difference may be partially explained by the fact 
that without any reference to the question of which party is the more frequently 
responsible for the marital unhappiness, the wife has more legal grounds for divorce 
than the husband, because certain well known and comparatively common grounds 
are more readily applicable against the husband than against the wife. For ex- 
ample, neglect to provide, a common legal cause for divorce on the part of the 
wife and cruelty, in so far as it is physical cruelty, are not ordinarily available 
grounds for a husband, although men are sometimes granted divorces on the 
ground of cruelty. 

Moreover, where each party desires divorce, it is more likely that the wife, more 
often than the husband will make the application, since a cause for which the wife 
would be granted a divorce might reflect less favorably upon the parties than 
would a cause for which the husband might be granted a divorce. 

The proportion of divorces granted to the wife fluctuated between 70.1 per cent 
in 1918, and 78 in 1940, as compared with 74.2 per cent for the entire period of 
1916 to 1940. 

Divorces Classified by Causes. — The statistics concerning the cause of di- 
vorce deal with the legal cause as ascertained from the court records. It should 
be borne in mind, however, that the cause for which a divorce is granted by the 
courts is not necessarily the underlying reason for the marital unhappiness, and 
that the value of statistics of divorce as an index to the actual causes is as a con- 
sequence impaired. 

Divorces granted on the ground of desertion have more than doubled in the 
twenty-five-year period 1916 to 1940, while the number of divorces granted for 
adultery has decreased slightly. 

The most common ground on which divorce was granted by the courts was cruel 
and abusive treatment, which accounted for 43.5 per cent of all the divorces granted 
in the period 1916 to 1940, for 16.5 per cent of all those granted to the husband in 
this period, and for 89.9 per cent of those granted to the wife. 

The number and per cent of divorces granted for all causes, to the husband and 
to the wife, for the twenty-five-year period 1916 to 1940, are showTi in Table 67, 
page 262. 

Annulled Cases. — Among the less important classes of cases appears the 
term "Annulments." In 1,254 cases, or 1.4 per cent of the total number of divorces 
granted during the period 1916 to 1940, there was some cause sho^\-n which may 
have existed at the time of marriage. These cases form but a small proportion of 
all cases considered, and do not affect the results to any material degree. 

Duration of Marriages. — The average number of years libellants were married 
at the time of application for divorce has fluctuated between 10.2 years in 1928 
and 11.1 years in 1918. The average number of years the libellants were married 
in 1940 was 10.8. 

Of the total libellants in Massachusetts for whom the number of years married 
was reported in 1940, 54.1 per cent made application for divorce before they had 
been married ten years, as compared with 55.4 in 1939, 55.5 in 1938, 53.1 in'l937, 
54.2 in 1936, and 55.2 for the twenty-five year period 1916 to 1940.

POPULATION STATISTICS

Introductory ........... 265 

Estimated population ......... 265 

Statistical table 266 

Introductory. — All vital statistics are based upon the population. The 
number of births, marriages, divorces and deaths is expressed in relation to the 
population, usually as rates giving the number occurring during the calendar year 
per 1,000 inhabitants or group of inhabitants, such as age groups, sex, nativity, race, 
marital condition, and occupation groups. 

Information regarding population is obtained by a census enumeration, and in 
Massachusetts these enumerations are made every five years. The statistics for 
1940 in this report are based on the Federal census taken as of April 1, 1940. 

The population of any community or State is continually changing, in most cases 
increasing, and for this reason it becomes necessary' to make estimates of the popu- 
lation for the periods between the census enumerations upon which to base rates 
for the various vital events, and especially for the accurate computation and ex- 
pression of birth, marriage, divorce, and death rates. Such estimates are neces- 
sary for all dates except those on which the census enumerations are made, and are 
in all cases preferable to a repetition of the census returns for a certain year. 

For non-census years the statistical tables in this book are based upon the esti- 
mated population as determined by the arithmetical method, which assumes a 
constant amount of increase between the census years. 

Estimated Population. — The method of calculating estimates of population 
for the intercensal years is shown in the following example : 

IMassachusetts had a population of 4,350,910 at the State census of 1935 (Jan- 
uarj^ 1), and of 4,249,614 at the Federal census of 1930 (April 1). The increase 
during the intercensal period (57 months) was 101,296, and the monthlj^ increase 
according to the arithmetical method of estimating population, was — 

4,350,910 — 4,249,614 

— — — - = l,lll 

57 

The same annual increase is also assumed to occur until the next census shall 
have been taken. The population for June 30, 1939, is estimated by adding to 
the population as it existed at the preceding census (January 1, 1935), 1,777 for 
each month inter^^ening between the date of enumeration and the date for which 
the estimate is desired (June 30, 1939). There being 54 months between these 
dates, the calculation would be 

4,350,910+(54X 1,777) =4,446,868. 

The census population for each municipality in the Commonwealth having over 
15,000 inhabitants in 1940 is shown on page 266.
