What year saw the most admissions/last vows?

The bar graphs appearing here show the change in the number of admissions and final vows over time from 1720 to 1900. The year 1900 was chosen as an arbitrary cut-off point in order to more accurately represent the fact that years after this point are missing information for Jesuits who had not yet passed away by the end of our dataset in 1970.
