[Report of the Medical Officer of Health for Leyton]
Table XI.— Number of Cases of Infectious Diseases as they occurred in the Four Chief
Wards of the District.
|Percentage of Cases||40.9||19.4||18.0||22.5|
|„ in 1902||42.8||25.4||14.8||17.4|
|„ in 1901||47.1||21.0||11.5||20.3|
The reason I give for the Leyton Ward percentage being so much higher than the other Wards is because
of the greater number of Board Schools in the Ward, and the resultant larger infantile population.
