Alleged Increase of Insanity

Extract

An important contribution to the study of this problem has been made by Mr. Noel A. Humphreys in a paper read before the Royal Statistical Society, 18th February, 1890. Considering the unfortunate and egregious mistakes which are made in the matter of statistics by those who either are ignorant of the elementary principles of the science, or who draw conclusions from insufficient data, it is of the first importance to have statisticians with special training, and provided with all the particulars which can be procured from dependable sources. These qualifications Mr. Humphreys possesses, and the result is the most trustworthy article to which men can refer who desire to know the real facts of the case.
