Abstract

Discussions of mortality have usually centered on the experience of the European states and their extensions abroad and overseas, for which much information is available. Europe has been fortunate during the few recent centuries of state-wide statistics in suffering little mortality from the zoonoses and little from parasitic diseases, peculiar to given regions or niduses. The contrast with African experience is marked.
