The average for 1924 was only 7.1. The best figures for 1925 were furnished by Hamburg (9.4), Berlin (9.2) and Bremen (8.8). Far below the average for the reich are East Prussia, Bavaria and Upper Silesia. The birth rate for 1925 was 21.3, which is a slight improvement on the rate for 1924 (21.1) but still far below the prewar figure (27.7).In 1925, there were 1,300,000 living births and 43,000 stillbirths.
