Behind the Vision of Britain web site is a true data library, a collection of individual statistics each with its own metadata to tell users what it means. These metadata also control how the system visualises statistical data through graphs and maps. This is what we know about the particular data value you selected:
|Identifier||1905826||This number locates the particular value within the data table; it is like an accession number in a conventional library.|
|Value||This is the data value itself.|
|Date(s) covered||We store dates within a date object, which can hold anything from a simple year value, for a census, to a period defined by two calendar dates.|
|Administrative area covered|
|Meaning (DDS cell reference)||No DDI metadata is held for this value, so it will be used only in reconstructions of source tables.|
This table lists, in its "value" column, a single row from our data table. The values are mostly identifiers and codes which are given meaning by our main sub-systems, and the "meaning" column reaches into these to tell you more.
