*If an occupier gives out work of more than one of the classes specified in column 1, and subdivides his list in such a way as to show the number of workers in
each class of work, the list should be included among those in column 2 (or 5 as the case may be) against the principal class only, but the outworkers should be assigned
in column 3 and 4 (or 6 and 7) into their respective classes. A footnote should be added to show that this has been done.
†The figures required in columns 2, 3 and 4 are the total number of lists received from those employers who comply strictly with the statutory duty of sending
two lists each year and of the entries of names of outworkers in those lists. The entries in column 2 must necessarily be even numbers, as there will be two lists for each
employer—in some previous returns odd numbers have been inserted. The figures in columns 8 and 4 will usually be (approximately) double of the number of
individual outworkers whose names are given, since in the February and August lists of the same employer the same outworker's name will often be repeated.
§In view of the wide discrepancies found to exist between the totals in the two columns when the returns are added together, it is desired that care may be taken to
give exact figures. Only those addresses should be counted which have actually been received from or forwarded to other Councils during the year covered by the report.
