Increased Birth Rate in Cienfuegos Cuba
In that regard, statistics show that 4,340 births were reported in 2008, 292 more than during the previous year.

The province's mortality rate was 4.8 deaths per every 1,000 live births last year, when 21 deaths were reported.

According to experts, that increasing trend favors authorities' efforts to stop population aging and low birth rates.

Cienfuegos also reported ten deaths of children of preschool age, a situation that compels health authorities to work hard to reduce that number.
