Long-run industrial structure data, simplified but with additional classification of areas
Approx. number of rows:
3,429
Table type:
Derived
Documentation Author:
Humphrey Southall
Geography:
Reporting units are identified by:
   National Grid Easting
   National Grid Northing
Chronology:
The data cover the period 1881 to 1911.
Dates and times are identified by:
   Year

Sources:

  1. This table is created primarily from ind_redistricted, but also includes data from several other tables within GBHDB which are used to define classifications.


Notes:

  1. The industry data here have been simplified relative to the data in ind_redistricted by making them more closely match the limitations of the data published for 2011: there is no break-down by gender, and SIC2007 Sections R, S, T and U are always merged. However, the sub-division of Manufacturing into six categories is retained ever though these data are not available for Scotland in 2011.
  2. The SIC Sections are grouped into the same seven "Sectors" used in Vision of Britain; these are defined by us.
  3. Three classifications of areas are currently included, and in most cases this table also uses various intermediate variables used to assign areas to these classifications:
    • Distance Band (dist_band): How far the local authority is from London, measured by the centroid of its 2011 boundaries.
    • Area Type (area_type): Currently a four-way classification based partly on population density in 2011 and partly on how the local authority is classified by the Centre for Cities.
    • Voting in 2016 EU Referendum (brexit): Whether the area voted Leave or Remain.


Checking:

  1. Derived data: the scripts used to generate these data have been checked carefully.
