Another bright and cold morning out there. The milk man delivered double cream in a bottle this morning - a first for us, even though we've had milk in bottles for many years. This may become a permanent change for us - stopping a few plastic pots being made.
That's nothing to do with my query!
I'm attempting to calculate the frequency of my surnames across the counties/censuses. I've extracted the counts by county/census - but now need the populations of the counties at each census. My searches have only turned-up data for the 1901 and 1911 Censuses - in Hansard of all places. I have tried searching using various keywords and phrases with no luck.
Has anyone found/seen summary table of populations by census/county? Or, where I should be looking?
Many thanks and stay safe,
Thank you both for your leads.
I've looked at both of the sites this morning - the amount of data available is incredible. With some extraction of the data from each county where the Dallison/Darlison clan lived I will be able to calculate the frequency and % of the surnames. I'm lucky that the total numbers of individuals is low and the number of counties where they lived is small.
I can go back to this project now I can access the data.
You might like to try this too. The web archive at The National Archives has a fascinating document covering all of Warwickshire. There are charts and graphs on many topics: e.g. the number of households in 1951 with or without piped water, baths, sinks, and cooking stoves; occupation graphs showing a huge drop 1851-1951 of agricultural workers and graphs showing key occupations. For those with a love of numbers and statistics, it’s worth a look. webarchive.nationalarchives.gov.co.uk-warwickshire_tcm77-181796pdf.
This sounds as if it will be of interest.
It's like being back at work - so much to do so little time! I've lost an hour this morning.
The three months will go very quickly - a very kind neighbour is ensuring we are supplied with fresh food.
I've redesigned the spreadsheet to take all this extra data from all the censuses - I've just got to extract the data now.
