Abstract: Brief abstract written by HRAF anthropologists who have done the subject indexing for the document This document integrates data from archival sources, census data, and oral histories to reconstruct demographic changes in Makin and Butaritari. It shows that on the eve of World War II the population of both communities was more than double what it was in the early 1900s. Population declined substantially in the wake of the war, mainly due to migration to other parts of the Gilbert Islands and beyond, so that by the 1970s about one-fifth of the people lived outside the two communities. The author notes the effects of these dynamics on family life, marriage choice, and the traditional authority of elders.
