In the published census tables for 1841 the Age abstract, England and Wales provides an age/sex analysis of the population of a number of places in age groups of 5 years. The following data shows the figures for Deal parish. The difference between males and females in the age range 15-24 is very striking.
Other local towns and parishes in the tables in the Historical Population Reports include: Dover, Folkestone, Sandwich, Margate, and Ramsgate.
