Pro capite vs per capita

Postby OldBoring » 2015-12-27, 15:54

Why is it “pro capite” in Italian but “per capita” in English? Do they both come from Latin?
I thought maybe from different cases in Latin.

Forse..., mi sento proprio molto stressato oggi, perché stiamo preparando la festa di Capodanno.
Buon anno MMXVI !
