NOTES FOR TABLE I.
Notes.—"The Kates in Column 7 are calculated per 1000 of the estimated gross population. The rates in Columns 5 and 13 have been calculated on a nett population obtained by deducting from the estimated gross population the average number of inmates not belonging to the district in public institutions, viz.:—
|Name of Institution.||Average number of inmates not belonging to District for 1915|
|Mogden Isolation Hospital||9|
|Wyke House Private Lunatic Asylum||32|
† The deaths included in Column 6 of this table are the whole of those registered
during the year as having actually occurred within the district. See note appended to
Table III. with regard to military deaths.
The deaths included in Column 12 are the number in Column 6, corrected by the
subtraction of the number in Column 8 and the addition of the number in Column 9.
The deaths in Column 10 are corrected by subtraction of the deaths under I,
included in the number given in Column 8, and by addition of the deaths under I,
included in the number given in Column 9.
‡ "Transferable Deaths" are deaths of persons, who, having a fixed or usual residence
in England or Wales, die in a district other than that in which they resided.
The deaths of persons without fixed or usual residence, e.g., casuals, are not included in
Column 8 or 9, except in certain instances under 3 (b) below.
The following special cases arise as to Transferable Deaths:—
(1). Persons dying in institutions for the sick or infirm, such as Hospitals,
lunatic asylums, workhouses, and nursing homes (but not almshouses) must be
regarded as residents of the district in which they had a fixed or usual residence at
the time of admission. If the person dying in an Institution had no fixed residence
at the time of admission, the death is not transferable. If the patient has been directly
transferred from one such Institution to another, the death is transferable to the
district of residence at the time of admission to the first Institution.
(2). The deaths of infants born and dying within a year of birth in an Institution
to which the mother was admitted for her confinement should be referred to the
district of fixed or usual residence of the parent.
(3). Deaths from Violence are to be referred (a) to the district of residence,
under the general rule; (b) if this district is unknown, or the deceased had no fixed
abode, to the district where the accident occurred, if known; (c) failing this, to the
district where death occurred, if known; (d) failing this, to the district where the
body was found.

Number of families or separate occupiers, 8,786. At Census of 1911.
