The subject of this second Presidential Address which I
have the honour of delivering to this Society was suggested by
the circular letter (September 10, 1925) in which the Department
of Local Government and Public Health announced that
it had been authorised by the Executive Council to take a
Census of the Population of the Irish Free State in April, 1926.
It is fortunate and gratifying that the Government of Northern
Ireland is also making arrangements to take a Census of their
six counties on or about the same date. It ought, therefore, to
be possible by a combination of these two Censuses to obtain
most of the figures for an All-Ireland Census, which would
make practicable a comparison of the 1926 figures with the
figures of the eight previous Censuses since 1841.
Read before the Society on Thursday, 3rd December, 1925
