The following chart shows the death rate from Spanish Influenza in Vancouver at 23.3 per 1,000 per annum. That’s ten times higher than Victoria’s 2.3 per 1000 for 1918-19. (See How Victoria fared.)
Adapted from Table 1 of Margaret W. Andrews, “Epidemic and Public Health: Influenza in Vancouver, 1918-1919.” BC Studies, No. 34, Summer 1977, pp. 21-44.
Death figures gathered for the four-and-a-half month term under study — for many cities far the worst time in the life of the pandemic — were converted to a rate per annum, but how is not made clear in the text.
A much lower death rate was derived for Vancouver in the M.Sc. thesis of Sarah Buchanan, Spanish Influenza in the City of Vancouver, British Columbia, 1918-1919 (UVic Geography department, 2012). Using available population numbers and a total of 934 deaths from influenza — but not pneumonia — reported in the City of Vancouver in 1918-19, “the mortality rate from influenza for the total population of Vancouver was 8.3 per 1,000 for 1918-19” (pp 49-50).
