The next table shows causes of strikes and lockouts each year, no data being given from which the results of strikes by causes could be shown:

The statistics of strikes and lockouts in Denmark for the three years 1897, 1898, and 1899 were compiled from a report published in 1901 by the Danish statistical bureau: Those for the years 1900 to 1904 were obtained from the yearbooks of the same bureau. The information relates to all disputes resulting in a suspension of work. The method of presentation in the yearbooks differs materially from that used in the first-mentioned compilation, and the statistics for the years 1900 to 1904 are much less complete than those for the preceding years. Hence the statistics could not in every case be The following table gives a summary of the more important facts published in relation to strikes and lockouts in Denmark from 1897 to 1904:

The statistics of strikes in France were obtained from the annual reports of the French labor bureau published since 1892. They cover all strikes reported during the years 1890 to 1905. As the method of presentation has remained practically unchanged during this entire period, the figures can be readily compared from year to year. Until recent years lockouts were not considered in these reports, and they have therefore been excluded from this compilation.

The following table gives a summary, by years, of the more important facts published in relation to strikes in France during the years 1890 to 1905.
