Abstract: Brief abstract written by HRAF anthropologists who have done the subject indexing for the document
This document is composed almost entirely of population
statistics relevant to the pueblo of San Juan, with particular emphasis on factors
affecting the rates of change in population growth, factors bringing about shifts in the
relationship between the number of births and the number of deaths, mortality at particular
age levels, and changes in life expectancy over a period of time. For the compilation of
the above data, the authors have used primarily the information obtained from records of
the Spanish civil authorities, the Franciscan fathers, the United States census, and the
United States Office of Indian Affairs. The article is illustrated with charts, graphs and
tables. A summary may be found on pages 183 and 184.
