Variable : Pauper categories: Indoor and Outdoor

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.

The reports of the Poor Law Board and the Local Government Board distinguished between Indoor, meaning those relieved in the workhouses, and Outdoor, meaning those in receipt of cash payments.
