The Online Historical Population Reports (OHPR)
provides online access to the complete British population reports
for Britain and Ireland from 1801 to 1937. The collection goes far beyond the
basic population reports with a wealth of textual and statistical material which
provide an in-depth view of the economy, society (through births, deaths and marriages)
and medicine during the nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. These 200,000
pages of census and registration material for the British Isles are supported
by numerous ancillary documents from The National Archives, critical essays and
transcriptions of important legislation which provide an aid to understanding
the context, content and creation of the collection.
