While data on demographic variables appears in remarkably similar form in successive censuses, occupational data varied greatly both in terms of reporting units and in how occupations were classified. This explains the number of separate tables listed here.
Because of the large number of occupational tables, they are divided between two sections. This section holds data for the pre-World War I period, when the same table attempted to cover both occupations, meaning what individual workers did, and industries, defined in terms of what business a worker's employer was in.
