nCube : Basic land use categories, as reported 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.

The Agricultural Census was not primarily a land use survey, but it did record the total farmed area, apparently excluding rough grazings, and for some dates it also recorded other categories including the area of rough grazings and the area of woodlands. In some cases, as with orchards, the acreages seem to be included within the overall farmed area, while woodlands are always separate.
