Statistics and Sociology, Vol. 1

Excerpt from Statistics and Sociology, Vol. 1 The present seems a favourable moment to present in scientific form those statistics of population which are of interest to the student of sociology and of economics, to the journalist and publicist, to those interested in social questions, and to intelligent men generally. The results of the great censuses of 1890 and 1891 in the United States, England, Scotland, Ireland, Germany, France, Austria, and India are now available. These data will not be superseded for at least ten years, nor is it probable that the next enumerations will be any more extensive or of greater sociological interest. For vital and criminal statistics we have the averages for 1871-90. This is a particularly favourable period, because the unification of Germany and of Italy marked the beginning of it, and there have been no great political changes since. At the same time, it has all the characteristics of modern life, - industrial development, commercial crises, migration, and intense social activity. Statistics based on averages for such a period, or following the changes from one phase to another, are of much greater interest than those of a single year, even the most recent. On the basis of this material, a systematic effort is made, in this volume, to present the statistics of population in such a way as to show their real significance.
