- The 1831 census was the first to provide some information about individual occupations,
but was also the last not to be based on a detailed door-to-door survey: it still relied
heavily on the network of parish priests, but they seem to have been diligent in
gathering this information.
The available data cover males over 20 only.
This rate covers the percentage in three of the nine original
1831 categories, "Occupiers employing Labourers",
"Occupiers not employing Labourers", and "Agricultural Labourers".
As such, it seems to be a pretty good measure of how far
each area's economy depended on agriculture.
