Rate : Percentage of 5 to 14 year olds attending Sunday School

Rates are used to define comparative statistics that can be mapped and graphed. For example, our occupational information includes counts of the number of workers in employment and out of employment, as well as the total number of workers. We then define a measure called the 'Unemployment Rate', which uses the number out of work rather than the number in work, and expresses it as a percentage of the total, rather than a rate per thousand. The descriptive text in the system is defined mainly for rates.

This can only be mapped for 1851, and there are clearly problems with combining the main and the schools census, as sixteen districts have rates over 100%. Here the pattern is very different from attendance at ordinary schools, with particularly high rates in Wales and the north, and the low rate around London. The explanation is that Sunday Schools were generally associated with non-conformist churches, so the pattern is very similar to that shown in the Religion theme.
