The mortality registered in the Hackney sub.district includes
the deaths in the East London Union, German Hospital, and
Hackney Workhouse, so that the aggregate is far in excess of that
which properly belongs to the sub.district. There were 64 deaths
registered in the German Hospital and East London Union, which
have to be eliminated from the total; and if the deaths in the
Hackney Workhouse be distributed, pro raid to the population,
over the whole district, the rate of mortality will be considerably
altered, and we shall have the corrected numbers as follows :—103
or 7.4 per cent for Stoke Newington; 87 or 6.3 per cent. for
Stamford Hill; 443 or 31.7 per cent. for West Hackney; 487 or
34.9 per cent. for Hackney ; and 274 or 19.7 for South Hackney
sub.districts.
