nCube : Workers in Manufacturing

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.

Our presentation of long-run trends in economic activity is based around the 2007 Standard Industrial Classification, but in that Manufacturing is treated as just one of twenty-one "Sections". Earlier classifications provide far more detail of manufacturing, so to present some of that detail in long-run perspective here we use a seven-way sub-classification of manufacturing used by the 2011 Census of England and Wales (unfortunately equivalent detail is not available from the Scottish 2011 census). "High-tech" includes electronics and aircraft manufacture, but also cars, shipbuilding and making any kind of machinery.
