* The Standard Death-rate signifies the death-rate at all ages calculated on the
hypothesis that the rates at each of the twelve age-periods in each town were the same as
in England and Wales during the ten years 1881-90, the Death-rate at all ages in England
and Wales during that period having been 19.15 per 1,000.
† The Factor for Correction is the figure by which the Recorded Death-rate should be
multiplied in order to correct for variations of sex and ago distribution.
‡ The Corrected Death-rate is the Recorded Death-rate after Correction has been
made for variations of age and sex distribution and may bo obtained by multiplying the
latter by the Factor for Correction.
§ The Comparative Mortality Figure represents the Corrected Death-rate in each
town compared with the Recorded Death-rate at all ages in England and Wales in 1885,
taken as 1,000.
