In making my calculations 1 allow six persons to
each occupied house, and one for each unoccupied house.
The census of 1901 showed the average to be 6.1
per house.
This method of calculating the population is the one
adopted by previous Medical Officers for the District.

registered. The birth-rate per 1,000 persons living was
