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 Gaelic in Scotland.

inquiry peculiar to Ireland, and lastly referring to those
subjects introduced in the Census Publications, regarding
which the information was obtained from other Government
