    The prevalence and demographic characteristics of consanguineous marriages in pakistan.R. Hussain & A. H. Bittles - 1998 - Journal of Biosocial Science 30 (2):261-275.
    Consanguineous marriages are strongly preferred in much of West and South Asia. This paper examines the prevalence and sociodemographic correlates of consanguineous unions in Pakistan using local and national data.

    The effects of religion, population sub-division and geography on the prevalence of deaf-mutism were investigated using information collected in the 1921 Census of Punjab.
