There has been enough progress toward uniformity of schedules and tabulation in the censuses of different parts of the British Empire to make comparisons with respect to such fundamental facts as sex, race, and birthplace possible for a large portion of the total area. BELLOM, M. La statistique internationale de l'assurance contre l'invalidité. Journ. Soc. Stat., Jan., 1914. Pp. 16.

A study of the extent and causes of the differences between correlation coefficients computed for indices (ratios) and for absolute numbers. An illustration is the correlation between the absolute number of deaths from diabetes and from cancer in different registration districts (corrected for a constant population) compared with the corresponding correlation of death rates. The difference is attributed to differences in the respective regression surfaces. For many purposes the uncorrected index correlation is sufficiently adequate.

A brilliant address (inaugural in the chair of statistics at the Univeristy of Padua).

The latest and possibly the best of the numerous German discussions of the logic of the statistical method which have been stimulated by the writings of Rickert and Tschuprow. Seutemann finds the unity of statistics not in the use of the particular form of the inductive method, nor in the "field" of statistics, nor yet in the law of large numbers or the theory of probabilities, but in the "transferability of statistical values (i.e., in the general representative nature of statistical results). To this end "Graunt's law" is subjected to much detailed exegesis.
