nCube : Males aged 20 and over, in four industrial categories

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:
The 1831 census provided information at parish-level on the number of males aged over 20 in each of nine occupational categories. Here we re-organise those nine categories into four to get some sense of the distribution of agriculture, of the new manufacturing industries and of the urban "trades". "Agriculture" is quite well-defined here, combining large- and small-scale farmers with agricultural labourers. "Manufacturing" is narrowly defined, excluding labourers and "capitalists", and focuses on the new factory-based industries. "Retail and handicrafts" covers the many workers in small businesses who sold products at the front of their shop and made them at the back. The "other" category covers "capitalists" and professionals, labourers outside agriculture, servants and "others".
