nCube : Housing Density (Generalised)

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.

Housing density, simplified to under 1 person per room, 1 to 1.5, and over 1.5. Data for these categories can be computed for districts in England and Wales for all censuses from 1931 onwards, but for Scotland they can only be computed for 1971 on.

Housing Density (Generalised): Data map listing

Each of our datasets, or nCubes, combines one or more variables (Var) each of which consists of a set of categories. The data map lists all the possible combinations of categories. The cell references are the identifiers held in our main table of statistics, recording what each number measures.

Cell Reference Var Category Value
HOUS_DENSITY_GEN:under_1 1 1 or less
HOUS_DENSITY_GEN:1_150 1 1 to 1.5
HOUS_DENSITY_GEN:over_150 1 Over 1.5
