Both tables based on Appendix I in John Fitzgerald, "The Confederation of Newfoundland with Canada, 1946-1949." M.A. thesis, Memorial University of Newfoundland, 1992, pp. 314-18. In turn, Appendix I reproduced the unpublished compilations of the Most Rev. Raymond J. Lahey. Lahey based his tables on the Reports of the Chief Returning Officer for both referenda, data obtained from the referenda results, and the 1945 Newfoundland census.
