Until 1922 only figures of Great Britain (England, Wales and Scotland); from 1922 onwards Northern Ireland is included.
Although figures of Ireland - as a whole and also of its division in provinces - are available at the compiler, it is quite impossible to calculate therefrom the part of Ulster that became Northern Ireland.
