“Journal of Mental Science,” April, 1894.
See paper “On the Alleged Increase of Insanity,” op. cit.
First Admissions for ten years ending 1882 amounted to 538, whilst those for the following ten years equalled 826.
Had not the actual admissions increased, it might be fairly argued that the calculation of the proportion of the insane to the enormously lessened population was fallacious. And, indeed, as it is, taken alone this is to a certain extent true, because the insane who remain on hand or are freshly admitted are in part derived from the families of those who have emigrated. This aspect of the question deserves more consideration than it has received.
