The author comments on the use of terminology vis-Ã -vis mixed marriages. The author emphasizes two points: first, that it is outside the competence of the demographer as a scientist to qualify demographic events, levels or trends as "good" or "bad." Second, politicians, historians, community leaders, welfare workers and others may wish to qualify the demographer's findings about mixed marriages by value statements. However, if they rely on the full gamut of the results of an unprejudiced and comprehensive analysis of the phenomenon, the opinions will certainly be mixed.
