population graph for Darowen

 
 

The actual recorded population figures were :-

 
In the year 1841 - 1041 people
In the year 1851 - 1119
In the year 1861 - 1227
In the year 1871 - 1183
In the year 1881 - 976
In the year 1891 - 702
In the year 1901 - 667
 
  From this we can see that the population rose to a high point in the middle of the Victorian period and then fell steeply to a population figure only just over half this highest point.
What do you think could have caused this?
