Statistical fun

Dick Eastman's newsletter led me to a new resource today, histpop.org. This has a variety of historical reports and commentaries about the population of the UK from 1801.

So far I've been browsing the Registrar-General's annual reports. The contents vary somewhat each year, but if (for example) your ancestor drowned and you wanted to know how many others had the same fate that year, it's quite possible that you will find it here amongst the tables of statistics in these reports.

FYI Wing falls into Division III: South Midland.

I also saw this post on EOGN, but I headed straight for the maps. I really must find time to explore the rest of it.
