Birth-rate for London 29.4 per 1,000 persons living.
MORTALITY.
General Mortality.—There were 509 deaths registered.
The recorded general death rate is therefore 15.1 per 1,000, as
against i5.8 in 1898 and i5.9 in 1897.
The London death-rate was 19.8 per 1,000 living.
Death-rates vary according to the nature of the population of the
respective districts; for instance, in a district containing a large number of
very young or very old people, the death-rate would be considerably
higher than in a district consisting of middle-aged people.
Taking into consideration the number of children in the parish, we
have in comparison with other districts a low death-rate.
Senile Mortality— Of the 509 deaths 91 were of persons over 65
years of age, 36 over 70 years of age, 16 over 80 years, and 3 over 90
years. The mean age at death of 56 Inhabitants was 78 years.
These figures denote an exceptionally high proportion of deaths
from Senile decay.
