This Table is included to compare by sexes the numbers of deaths from pulmonary
tuberculosis with those from malignant neoplasm of the lung or bronchus. The numbers
of both males or females who have died of pulmonary tuberculosis have declined during
these last ten years. The numbers of deaths from malignant neoplasm of the lung or
bronchus are of interest in view of trends shewn by national figures. The Table shows
the higher incidence in men for both diseases, and that over the last nine years these
neoplasms have produced a wastage of life greater than that of pulmonary tuberculosis.
