nCube : Farmland Use, as reported by the Land Utilisation Survey

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 Land Utilisation Survey of Great Britain, based at the London School of Economics and led by Professor L. Dudley Stamp, organised schools throughout Britain in the 1930s to map land use in their local area, using standard categories defined by Stamp. These statistics dividing farmland into arable and permanent grassland form part of the county-level statistics published by Stamp in his book The Land of Britain: Its use and misuse (1948 and later editions).
