THE CENSUS. To the Editor of the Illawarra Mercury. [Newspaper Article] — Illawarra Mercury — 17 March 1856

THE CENSUS. To the Editor of the Illaivarra Mercury . Sir, — Would you, or some of your readers, inform me. if it is right, in taking the census to omit children under one year old. My rea son for asking is, that the collector, for this end of the district refused to enter any under that age. If this should be done all over the colony it would make a vast difference in the amount of the population, particularly in large towns such as Sydney, Maitland, tfce. In my opinion, a child, if only a day old, oiii-htto he entered, i and the returns cannot be correct it they are omitted. In taking the census in former years they were always included, and, unless the system is changed, I think they, ought to be, included now . as; well.. Your opinion on this would oblige several of .my friends, as well as - ' , 'i, ' : .Your obedient servant, JJULLI. 'Wollongong, March 10, 1856.
