Figures made public by the Bureau
of the Census go to show that con-

of deaths to 100,000 of population has
continued to decline during the period
covered by the report which begins.
with the year 1918. The rate was then
150. . Last year it was 97. This' de-
cline in the rate, however, was ac-
companied during 1922 with a slight
increase in the actual number of deaths
as compared withthe preceding years.
The figures are 88,136 for 1921 and
90,452 for 1922.
Comparison is made of the death
rates from tuberculosis in all the
States included in the registration ar-
ea. This comparison goes farther
than the mere consideration of the ac-
I tual number of deaths in proportion
to the total population. The census
statisticians work out adjusted rates
which make allowance for differences
in ages and the proportion of the sex-
es in the several States, and showl how
the deaths would compare if these
differences did not exist..; In 1922;
there were 3732 deaths from tulercu-
losis -in Massachusetts. The adjusted
rate 'is 90, which is a little lower than
the rate of Rhode Island and Connec-
ticut, and is higher than the rates in
the three Northern States, which- are
81.2 in Maine; 86.8 in New Hampshire
and 87.8 in Vermont. Outside New'
