The population figure drop from the Anlushan rebellion has been considerably discussed – whether those figures were the effect of actual carnage, or rather an artifact of a drop in the administrations ability to do a proper census?

Also the accuracy of numbers can be matter of discussion. Let's say that the laws of great numbers suggest that the difference between 10% and 50% should be realistic, but what about the confrontation between a 23% and a 25%?

Personally I would be cautious about writing down accurate charts when you need real figures from the ancient past.
