The chief results of the Census of 1911 are now accessible,
and this circumstance naturally suggests a review
of Tasmanian demography. The returns, however, are
still incomplete, and all that is attempted in this paper is
to call attention to some of the more remarkable phennomena in Tasmanian population, leaving a fuller discussion
until all the data are available. In relation to Migration, the seasonal fluctuations in Tasmanian migration are
well known, but need emphasising as a warning against
comparing the population at different times unless both
estimates are for the same day of the year. By distributing
the annual loss equally throughout the year, and
taking it away from the migration figures, we get the average quarterly fluctuation for the last ten years.
