The need spurred the search for skilled manpower abroad; much of it was available because of war-time dislocations. Nevertheless, as we have seen, this immigration was not enough to offset the population gaps when the time came for the missing people to enter the housing market. Perhaps the economy could have adjusted if the birth-rate had remained consistently low. But the post-war upward surge to earlier levels created a mass of population in the younger age groups. This is revealed in the 1961 census figures in the very large proportion found in the age categories 0-4, 5-9, and 10-14.

As the wave breaks into the marrying age, causing the demand for living accommodation to shoot up, it will place a great strain on the housing consbuction industry. The slow-down of activity in various sectors of industry in the late fifties and early sixties, especially in consumer durables, was only temporary.
