From Table 1a we see that the death-rate of London
proper is also exceedingly low, viz.: 17.4, or more than 1
per thousand lower than in 1888, when the death-rate was
lower than that of any preceding year; it is thus clear
that the past year has been exceedingly healthy, not only
in this Parish but in London generally.
The death-rate of greater London, with a population of
5,642,015, was only 16.8, or 1 per thousand lower than the
preceding year, but it will be observed over 2½ per thousand
higher than the death-rate of this Parish.
