LETTER OF TRANSMITTAL 



Raleigh, North Carolina 
October 8, 1953 

The Honorable William B. Umstead 
Governor of North Carolina 
Raleigh, North Carolina 

Dear Governor Umstead : 

I have the honor of transmitting the report for the Public 
Health Statistics Section of the Epidemiology Division, State 
Board of Health, covering the calendar year 1952. 

Respectfully submitted, 

J. W. R. Norton, M. D. 
Secretary and State Health Officer 



INTRODUCTION 

The thirty-seventh annual report, Part II, of the Public Health 
Statistics Section, formerly known as the Bureau of Vital Statis- 
tics, presents tabular information regarding North Carolina's 
population, births, deaths, and stillbirths. The majority of the 
tabulations are by place of residence; selected tabulations, in 
whole or in part, are given by place of occurrence. Commun- 
icable disease morbidity data are shown in Part I of the annual 
report of the Section which is printed separately. 

Reports have been published annually since 1914 with the 
exception of the years 1918 and 1919. 

Certificates of births, deaths, and stillbirths occurring in 1952 
that were filed in 1952 and the first three months of 1953 are 
included in this report. It is estimated that vital events occur- 
ring in 1952 but reported after the first three months of 1953 
will comprise less than two per cent of the total 1952 events. 
There are strong indications that registration in the state has 
been improving in recent years. The certificates are more com- 
plete and accurate and on the average have been filed more 
promptly. 

Again in 1952 a tabulation was made of all birth and death 
certificates filed in 1952 by year of occurrence (see 1950 or 1951 
annual report for explanation of interpretation). This was done 
in an effort to determine the per cent of certificates filed in time 
to be included in an annual report as compared with those filed 
too late to be included. The results of this study are shown in 
Table 8 of this report. This tabulation was prepared by county 
of residence in order to make available a correction factor that 
could be used by each county to more accurately calculate the 
natality and mortality rates. 

Natalitij 

In 1952 there were 111,000 live births occurring to mothers 
who were residents of the state. All births were allocated to the 
place of residence of the mother regardless of the place of birth 
or the length of residence. Births occurring in hospitals, sana- 
toria, and all other institutions, were allocated to the place w^here 
the mother lived. Births occurring on military bases to military 



8 Annual Report Nineteen Hundred Fifty-two 

personnel were allocated according to the residence shown on the 
certificate. The crude birth rate was 26.6 births per 1,000 popu- 
lation. There were 73,972 white births and 37,028 nonwhite 
births. For the seventh consecutive year, over 100,000 births 
were recorded. 

This state defines a stillbirth as a fetus showing no evidence 
of life after complete birth if the twentieth week of gestation 
has been reached. There were 2,499 resident stillbirths reported 
resulting in a rate of 22.5 stillbirths per 1,000 live births. If 
stillbirths were considered as a single cause of death, they would 
rank fourth between cancer and influenza and pneumonia as a 
leading cause of death. 

Premature Births 

In order to achieve uniformity in the classification of premature 
infants in need of special care, and comparability of statistical 
data in hospitals and in studies of such infants, the definition 
of the American Academy of Pediatrics has been adopted ; that 
is, a premature infant weighing 2500 grams or less at birth re- 
gardless of the period of gestation. 

In 1952, there were 9,577 resident premature live births re- 
ported among 111,000 live births. Birth weight was reported on 
all but 570 certificates filed in 1952. Consequently, at least 8.7 
per cent of the newborn babies weighed less than 5 pounds and 

9 ounces at birth. The number of premature infants by birth 
weight and age of mother are shown below :

Mortality 

There were 32,095 resident deaths recorded in 1952. The crude 
death rate was 7.7 deaths per 1,000 estimated population. Deaths 
were allocated to the place where the deceased resided unless the 
place of death item indicated that the deceased had been in the 
place of death for one year or more. In such cases they were 
allocated to the place of death, unless the death occurred in an 
institution. If this was the case, they were allocated to the place 
of residence, regardless of the length of stay in the institution. 

Diseases of the heart, as they have been for the past 32 years, 
were responsible for more deaths than any other cause, account- 
ing for approximately one-third of all deaths for the year. 

All mortality statistics shown by cause in this report are class- 
ified according to the Sixth Decennial Revision of the Interna- 
tional Lists of Diseases and Causes of Death. This is the fourth 
year that this revised statistical code has been applied to the 
causes of death; therefore, some attention must be given to the 
effects of the revision on certain causes of death before compari- 
son with previous years can be made accurately. 

The most important feature of this revised classification pro- 
cedure is the emphasis that is placed on the underlying cause of 
death, as determined by the attending physician. The physician's 
statement is used as the determining factor when two or more 



10 Annual Report Nineteen Hundred Fifty-two 

causes of death are entered. Approximately 75 per cent of the 
death certificates have two or more causes entered in the medical 
certification section. For the decade, 1939-1948, the selection of 
the cause of death for tabulation was made according to joint- 
cause rules which established priority of cause based on certain 
factors rather than on the physician's opinion. 

In Table 14, regarding deaths from selected causes, 1916-1952, 
it is necessary to take into consideration the effect of the revision 
of the International List and of the joint-cause of death coding 
procedure. A comparability ratio may be obtained upon request. 
This ratio is calculated from the approximate change that has 
taken place due to coding revisions between the periods, 1949- 
1952 and prior years, 1939-1948. This ratio was obtained by 
classifying deaths according to the Fifth Revision of the Inter- 
national Code as well as by the Sixth Revision and then basing the 
ratio on the changes derived. 

Hospital Data 
All tables in this report which reflect events occurring in hos- 
pitals are based on the general and allied hospital definition of 
the North Carolina Medical Care Commission. A hospital is 
defined as a place where two or more nonrelated individuals re- 
side 24 hours or more on the premises and receive medical care 
over and above any domiciliary care. 

Infant and Maternal Mortality 

There were 3,929 infant deaths and 113 maternal deaths re- 
ported. The resultant infant and maternal deaths per 1,000 live 
births were 35.4 and 1.0 respectively. The maternal mortality 
rate was the lowest on record. The actual number of maternal 
deaths represent a new low dating back to 1914. 

In 1918, there was an all-time high rate of 101.8 infant deaths 
per 1,000 live births. The infant mortality rate was almost three 
times as high thirty-four years ago as it was in 1952 while the 
maternal rate was ten times as high at that time. 

Rates 
All rates shown in this report are crude rates unless otherwise 
specified. Such rates have not been adjusted for differences in 
the age, sex, color, rural or urban distribution of the population, 
or for under-registration or late reporting. Such factors should 
be kept in mind when comparing two different areas or time 
periods.
