Fewer Deaths in Age Groups Up to 35 Years in Pennsylvania Although the popul.'.tion of. Pennsylvania line grown f'-om 7,888,000 1n I f l l O to !),SfH,000 lu 192S, here w«ro no more dealue in the l.irjjcr population of Jthe later year, the bureau of vital Btaillstlcs of the State Department of Health has just announced. It In ateo pointed ou* that there were few b i r t h s In -1028 t h a n In 3910, but the bureaii states fever wore jieoee- eary because deaths among children under fivo years of ag s were loss thnn halt' in number in 1928 as compared with the earlier year. Tho announcement discloses that in every age group up / 35 years there were fewer deaths i i 1928 than in 1010, the decrease fro n the age of 10 being duo in large maasure. 1o a decline in the death r.ite from tuber- culoaie. On the other hand, according- to the bureau, the age #roupii above- 35 years all Khow an exoeoa of deaths in 1928 over IfllO. At ages f r j m 35 to 44 the increase is proportiorately lo6R than I he increase in populaiion, but at ages above 45, deaths have increased faster t h a n total population. One reason for t h i n situation, It i« explained, 3s a change in the age die rlbution of the population. "There are more pe pie ovar 45 per 1,000 of tho population now than in 1910," eay« the vtafcem»nt, "and. conee- nuontly there are more deaths at these apes. But at agt e over 55 there were 50 per cent more deathu iti 1028 thttii In 1910. This BUggeaLa that if wo could compute satisfactory upecllic death ratas for these ai;es in 1028, thciy would be distinctly ulirher than tho corresponding rates In the early yeai-s of registration. "The decrease in tiw death rates in t h r earlier years has r umlled in quite b t i i r t l i n g changes iu th median ago tit death. In 11)10 for the otu.1 population tlu 1 median age at dead waa 34 years. That is, there were a) many death* before the age of 34 ae after that ag-e. In 1928, the median age at death wae 55 years. For males 'he median a-ge at death advanced froj i I!."! to 53, and for female* from 35-to · ?." The bureau pointed aut that in the native white populatfo i the change was even greater, t'ron 18 to 51.5 for males and from to EG for females.
