nCube : Educational Level Total

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.

Total number of persons included in 'level of education' data. How this was calculated varies between censuses: In 1951 and 1971, it covers all occupied persons, whether economically active or retired. In 1961, it covers all persons over 25, but the data come from a 10% sample. In 1981 and 1991, it covers all over 18 and under the normal retirement age for their sex. in 2001, it covers all aged 16 to 74.
