New Caledonia

Standing Source: These figures denote the number of convicts in New Caledonia on 31 December of each given year. They are drawn from M. le Dt Jh Orgéas, ‘Contribution a l’Étude du Non-Cosmopolitisme de l’Homme: La Colonisation de la Guyane par la Transportation, Étude Historique et Démographique’, Archives de médicine navale, no. 39 (March 1883), pp. 186-7. The figures for 1878-1912 are from Notices sur la transportation à la Guyane française et à la Nouvelle-Calédonie, 1876-1912. The latter statistics were generously supplied by by Jean-Lucien Sanchez.
