The deaths registered in the District during the year 1894
numbered 525, of which 259 occurred in the three institutions
already mentioned, and must be deducted. To the number thus
reduced must be added 33, which is the number of persons,
belonging to the District, who died outside its boundaries. The
corrected number of deaths to be accounted to the District in
1894, thus becomes 299. Of this number 153 were the deaths
of males, and 146 were those of females.
This mortality corresponds to a death-rate of 10.6 per 1,000
persons living. The death-rate among males was 11.4, and that
among females was 9.8, per 1,000 living of the corresponding sex.
This is a very low death-rate, and is the lowest of which
there is record in the District.
The average annual death-rate of the ten preceding years
was 12.9 per 1000 living; the highest rate (15.1) having occurred
in 1884, and the lowest (10.9) in 1889. The death-rate for
England and Wales in 1894 was 16.6 per 1000, being by far the
lowest on record.
The distribution of the deaths in the District, with the
corresponding death-rates, is shown in the following table.
