During the year 1902, plans for 1,186 houses were passed and in
1903 plans for 908 houses were passed. Assuming that the houses of
1902 and half the number of houses of 1903 were completed and
occupied at the mid year, the following table will give an approximate
population, by a different method to that of the Registrar-General.

The number of houses occupied is arrived at by assuming the same
proportion is empty in various wards, as at the Census of 1901,
excepting the Northern Ward, which I assume to have 1 empty in 12 ;
whereas at the Census 1 in 7 was empty.
