7. The figures in the graph are based as follows: for northern and southern Kensington from 1846 to 1855 and 1871 to 1885, on the detailed monthly returns of the district surveyors; for northern and southern Kensington from 1856 to 1870 (when monthly returns are not available) and for London as a whole from 1858 to 1885, on the annual returns of the district surveyors. The figures in this second category differ slightly from those used in the graph on page 6 of volume XXXVII of the Survey of London as it was discovered that a more accurate total of the number of buildings erected annually is obtained by adding those for which fees were received in ‘arrears’ to the current year's figure rather than the preceding year's.
