Variable : 1921 Occupational Classification

Variables serve as the dimensions of nCubes, and are generally based on the questions on forms such as the census schedule. However, in the aggregate data held in the Vision of Britain system we do not store the individual responses but counts of the number of each kind of response, so variables are made up of categories, such as age groups.

1921 Occupational Classification
Variable (V)
This system of occupational orders was used by the 1921 Census of Population. Some tables break this classification down further into a more detailed system of codes. The full classification includes an Order XXXII, 'Retired or Not Gainfully Occupied', but this is excluded from our variable.
