Variable : 1841 Occupational Titles

Variables serve as the dimensions of nCubes, and are generally based on the questions on forms such as the census schedule. However, in the aggregate data held in the Vision of Britain system we do not store the individual responses but counts of the number of each kind of response, so variables are made up of categories, such as age groups.

1841 Occupational Titles
Variable (V)
The 1841 census was the first to systematically gather occupational data via a household enumeration, and did not develop an occupational classification as understood by later censuses. Instead, they reported many individual occupational titles plus some ad hoc groupings which varied between counties. The GBH GIS project has computerised these listings in their entirety. We have standardised the punctuation and capitalisation of the occupational titles, but have preserved all the various original wordings. This variable therefore has 3,520 categories, although only some of these appear for any given county.
