HC Deb 27 November 1890 vol 349 c123

I beg to ask the President of the Local Government Board whether he is aware that the decennial Reports of the late Dr. Farr showed the number of deaths in each registration district, cause of death, and sex, but that the Report 1871–80 of Dr. Ogle, in lieu of distinguishing male from female, only shows persons; and whether, for the decennial Report 1881–90, the Report of Vital Statistics can be compiled so as to distinguish sex?


I find that the change of practice with regard to the decennial Reports referred to was made, and I am giving the matter my consideration.
