Abstract

This study was undertaken in an attempt to find factors which affect the recent declining birth rate in Tokyo. Vital statistics among females ages 20-39 between 1970 and 1985 in Tokyo were compared to national averages. Indices examined were: birth rate, percentage of married women, birth rate for married women and birth rate for married women by live birth order. The following results were obtained. 1)Birth rates for females ages 20-24 and 25029 were largely dependent on percentage of married women rather than birth rates for married women both in Tokyo and the nation as a whole, while birth rates for females ages 30-34 and 35-39 were more dependent on birth rates for married women.
