TUBERCULOSIS.
The deaths from all forms of tuberculosis numbered 163 in 1912 (94 of males and 69 of
females), as contrasted with 212 in 1911 (122 of males and 90 of females). During the five years
1907-11 the deaths from these causes averaged 199 per annum, and during the preceding quinquennium
(1902-06), 234 In the quinquennium 1891-95 the annual average was 270. The
decrease in the number of deaths (equal to 39. per cent. of the average for 1891-95) is noteworthy,
but a complete examination of the numbers of deaths from causes other than
tuberculosis requires to be made before any definite opinions can be expressed. The smaller
numbers returned under " tuberculosis " may be due simply to transference to other causes.
Deaths from tuberculosis during the past ten years have shown a curious tendency tobiennial
increases and decreases, as is shown by the following figures:—
