THE materials for this inquiry have been obtained from the Weekly Reports of the Registrars'-General for England and Scotland for the ten years, 1865-74. The data discussed embrace returns of deaths from all causes and at all ages, deaths of persons under one year of age, of persons above sixty years of age, and deaths from diarrhoea. The weekly averages have been calculated on the annual rate of mortality per 1,000 of the population.
