nCube : Detailed 1881 occupational statistics, by gender

nCubes hold all the statistics presented by the Vision of Britain system, and are defined as combinations of variables. For example, the age-sex tables that appear in most census reports are held as two-dimensional nCubes in which one dimension is a variable categorising sex and the other variable defines a set of age groups. nCubes can have many dimensions, such as age by sex by occupation by cause of death, or just one.

The published reports of the 1881 census provide occupational statistics only for counties and a small number of selected Sanitary Districts covering the largest towns. However, with the assistance of Essex University and the work of innumerable local historians coordinated by the Genealogical Society of Utah, we present here statistics created for us from the listings of individual people in the census enumerators' books, using the same detailed occupational classification as was used in the published reports. These data are available for parishes and for Registration sub-Districts.
