Abstract:This paper attempts to elucidate the character and mechanics of population growth among a group that can be loosely equated with the 'whites' of Afrikaners in the Cape Colony in the eighteenth century. Essentially it is an overview, because many of the details which are needed for a full demographic analysis are lacking. Sections: Sources - Population mechanics - Marriage - Fertility - Family size - Replacement. Notes, tables, figures. Summary p. 176.
