Note: The above analysis is based on the printed Annual Reports of the SPCK. Owing to the problems of establishing comparability, the figures cannot be presented as a continuous series. From 1811 onwards the Reports supply additional information of gratuitous distributions to missions and from 1813 of instructional manuals on the Sacrament, Confirmation, the Catechism, etc. to Sunday Schools. For a similar reason this cannot be included in the table, but the large annual increases from 1811 to 1816 strengthen the impression of mounting exertion within the Society. The following aggregates show this trend at its peak:
