CENSUS OF THE COUNTY OF YORK. The result of the census of the County of York has just been issued in the form of a Blue-book, which gives details of the area, houses, and population. The population is also classified by ages, conditions as to marriage are given, and facts are supplied concerning occupations, birth- places, and infirmities. The Ancient or Geographical county contains, according to the revised returns, an area of 3,882,328 statute acres, with a population of 3,584,762 persons. In 1801 the population was only 859,133, so that, during a century it has increased practically fourfold. The three Ridings, each being an administrative county, together with eight county boroughs, have now a population of 3,590,752, as against 3,213,981 in 1891. The In three registration ridings, each being an ao-arega- tion cf registration districts, contain a popular tion of 3,595,325. The City and County Borough of York has a population of 77,914, as agairfst 6/,841 ten years ago. The females enumerated largely exceed the males, although it is stated tnat the disproportion is not so great as in London or Lancashire. It is shown that the proportion of the married to the population at all ages is now higher than it was in 1891. owing to the decrease in the proportion of children tnrougn the decline in the birth rate. The pro- portion of the married, however, if calculate with the population aged upwards of twenty years, is distinctly lower than it was ten years ego, among both sexes. In the returns blind persons number 2,673; deaf and dumb persons, 1,655; and lunatics, 6,934.
