nCube : Ages of fowls (chickens) as recorded by the Agricultural Census

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.

Text:
In 1940 and 1950, the Agricultural Census divided fowls (chickens) into birds aged over and under six months. Later censuses further classified birds under six months based on intended use, but we have re-classified the later data to this simpler system.
