Abstract

Although the census of 1847 has been already illustrated
on two previous occasions ;* yet, as the same returns are
included in the present volume, and form the groundwork
for the "Statistics of 1849," it becomes necessary again to
place on record an analysis of the group of tables which
refer to the population of the colony.
By table 1 it appears that the grand total of the population
of Van Diemen's Land on the 31st December 1847
was 70,164. Of these 68.16 per cent, were males, and
31.84 females.
