Series notes:
Governor Arthur requested at the end of his period of administration, that the Colonial Secretary create a compilation of statistics based on the annual statistical returns that had come to the Colonial Secretary's Office since 1824. This began the process which resulted in the publication of Statistics of Tasmania which eventually transferred to the Commonwealth Government in 1924.
