Although statistics calculated from the Annual Reports of the Royal Edinburgh Asylum are quoted above, it is to be noted that they do not permit of a strictly accurate comparison with those of English public asylums, on account of the large number of private patients that asylum receives; this fact may lead to a certain amount of selection of the cases admitted.
