I have selected as my subject "The Principal Results of the Census of the United Kingdom in 1901." The Census was taken in England and Scotland under the Census (Great Britain) Act, 1900, which applied equally to England and Wales, and Scotland. Under this Statute particulars were obtained regarding Houses; the Sex, Age, Condition as to Marriage, Occupation, Birthplace, Nationality, and certain Infirmities of the Population; also the number of Persons speaking Welsh in Wales and Monmouthshire, and of Persons speaking Gaelic in Scotland. Under the Census (Ireland) Act, 1900, the enumeration was of a much more extended character, and embraced in addition to the subjects inquired into in England and Scotland, Religious Profession, Education, Schools, Agricultural Holdings, and Sickness. I propose dealing first with those heads which are common to the three countries; then discussing the branches of inquiry peculiar to Ireland, and lastly referring to those subjects introduced in the Census Publications, regarding which the information was obtained from other Government Departments.
