nCube : Generalised Sheep 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.

Text:
This set of three generalised categories was suggested by Dr. John Chapman (University of Portsmouth) and identifies breeding ewes, lambs aged under one, and all other sheep. Dr. Chapman notes that the number of ewes measures the breeding stock while the number of lambs measures the productivity of that stock.
