Infant Mortality Statistics for Local Government Districts in 1911
Approx. number of rows:
1,826
Table type:
Raw Data
Documentation Author:
Humphrey Southall
Geography:
Reporting units are identified by:
   Administrative County
   Local Government District
   Local Government District Type
Chronology:
The data cover the period 1881 to 1911.

Sources:

  1. This is a very partial transcription from the Registrar General's Annual Report for 1911 made by Chris Galley, limited to the number of infant births and the infant mortality rate.


Notes:

  1. This dataset will eventually be replaced by a full transcription of the mortality tables for Local Government Districts from the RG's Annual Reports in the years immediately before WWI.


Checking:

  1. No checking has been done on the data, but Chris Galley used a list of the district names supplied by us, based on those units appearing in the 1911 LGD coverage within the Mark I GIS.
