- Separate data values
- 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.
The nine categories they used were as much to do with different industries as
with social status.
However, here we present the percentage of males over 20 who were described either as
"Labourers", both agricultural and non-agricultural, or as "Servants".
