nCube : 1801 Crop Acreages

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 1801 crop returns list differing crops for different parishes, so these data need to be treated with some care; a total of 63 crops or combinations of crops are listed, but many are very similar. Note that a great many parishes were missing from the data, and some additional parish names could not be identified, matched more than one parish within the named county, or lacked information on the county they were in. Nottinghamshire is completely missing. County totals include data for parishes that could not be identified. The national total for England includes parishes with missing county information. The national total for England is also used as the total for England and Wales, to permit the web site to present comparisons with national totals, even though the returns contain no data on Wales.
