In the places marked with a star there are no inhabitants, the people having emigrated to Bornou, or been captured and carried thither.

The number of men, or adult males enumerated in the above columns, amounts to 12,731.  Taking this number as the foundation-stone of Asbenouee statistics, the population may be reckoned in this way, according to the manners of the Kailouee people:—­

Adult males 12,731
Adult females (wives) 12,731
Female slaves or concubines (a fifth of the adult) 5,000
Children (two for every adult male) 25,462
Town of Tintalous 450
City of Aghadez 2,500
          
                                         ------
          
                                         58,874

There are still remaining to be added in the computation the statistics of numerous tribes on the frontiers, or surrounding Aheer and Aghadez.
