prévisions par pesonne
Explanation:
per capita:

To find out if one city really is more dangerous than another, you need to determine a per capita murder rate. That is, the number of murders for each person in town.
To find that rate, simply divide the number of murders by the total population of the city.

So it means: per person.

agree  Ana and Michel: effectivement, surtout l'expression par tête est légèrement péjorative (on est pas des veaux).
