*Population change, 1687 - 1971
*Famine mortality 1846 - 51
*Female celibacy in 1841 and 1871
*Milk consumption 1836
*Percentage of illiterate males related to the proportion of male Gaelic speakers in 1851
*Livestock numbers in Ireland 1847 - 71
This is only a small part of the figures. There are over a hundred maps. There are a number of valuable statistical essays:
*"The literate and the ignorant"
*"The plight of the poor"
*"Cultivating the soil"
*"Death and the great famine"
*"Wages before the famine"
*"Catholics and Protestants.
There are more. This is packed into 200 pp counting the index.
I can't imagine this being done better than we have it here. Exemplary in its type. No reader in history could fail to be impressed and of great value to anyone concerned with Irish history, beyond the usual sentimentalities which are now becoming rare, anyway.
