  2. Numeric codes identifying number of rooms used within the Icem project are as follows: 0-997 = range of constructed total number of rooms in the dwelling, 998 = Illegible or unclassifiable, 999 = Blank.
  3. The I-CeM guide notes that the room number excludes bathroom, scullery, landing, lobby, closet, warehouse, office and shop. Half values can occur where a respondent shared a room (1911). After 1861 in Scotland only the rooms with windows were counted.
