Chronology:
The data cover the period 1971 to 2011.
Dates and times are identified by:
   Year

Sources:

  1. The table covers England and Wales and Scotland.
  2. This table was generated from data from various years held in tables in the 'cen_soc' section, but also from earlier data on occupations. Not every column is populated in all years, dependent on the data available. It currently holds Social Class data for the following years:
    • 2011, GB: Counts of males by household from soc_2011_ew & soc_2011_s
    • 1991, GB: Counts of males 10% sample, multiplied by 10 when added to this table from soc_1991_ew
    • 1971, EW: Counts of males 10% sample, multiplied by 10 when added to this table from seg_1971_ew
    • 1971, S: Counts of males, from seg_1971_s


Notes:

  1. Information about social class for women from 1971 backwards is limited, problematic or unavailable. Therefore this table only includes counts of males or counts of households (heads) to enable consistent representation.
  2. In 2011 and 2011 record Approximate Social Grades. These differ from earlier Social Class data as they combine the initial two categories and last two categories and splits the middle one.
    • Grade AB = 'Higher and intermediate managerial/administrative/professional'
    • Grade C1 = 'Supervisory, clerical, junior managerial/administrative/professional'
    • Grade C2 = 'Skilled manual workers'
    • Grade DE = 'Semi-skilled and unskilled manual workers; on state benefit, unemployed, lowest grade workers'
    Additionally the algorithm which created the 2011 Grades was different to the one which created 2001 Grades. This makes drawing direct comparisons difficult. See the Market Research Society descriptions for more information.
  3. Between 1961 and 1991 Social Economic Group (SEG) data was used (now modified to a classification known as 'NS-SeC'). The Social Classes in this table have been matched to SEG data as follows (based on 1971 SEG classifications):
    • 'A' = G3, G4
    • 'B' = G1_1_II, G1_2_II, G2_1_II, G2_2_II, G5_1, G7_II, G12_II, G13, G14
    • 'C_non' = G1_1_IIIN, G1_2_IIIN, G2_1_IIIN, G2_2_IIIN, G5_2, G6_IIIN, G7_IIIN, G8, G12_IIIN
    • 'C_man' = G1_1_IIIM, G1_2_IIIM, G2_1_IIIM, G2_2_IIIM, G7_IIIM, G9, G12_IIIM, G15_IIIM
    • 'D' = G2_1_IV + G6_IV + G7_IV + G10 + G12_IV + G15_IV
    • 'E' = G2_1_V + G11 + G12_V
    • 'un' = G16 (Members of the Armed Forces) and G17 (Inadequately described occupations)
    • 'Total' = All of the above SEG categories, excluding un containing G16 and G17.
  4. Anomalies in the social class groupings for 1971 are: (i)'foremen' normally assigned to class IV or V are placed in class III, (ii)'managers' normally in class IV or V are also placed in class III (except groups 003, 004 and 006) (iii) All other managers go into class II.
  5. Those not included in 1971 are the economically inactive who are classified as retired (over 65 and no longer working), socewives, students in educational establishments, those permanently sick, those not seeking or never have been employed, government trainees, au pairs and those who failed to answer the economic activity questions.
  6. The 1951 Census reported simply on 5 Social Class categories, identified as:
    • 'Social Class 1' (Professional, etc Occupations)
    • 'Social Class 2' (Intermediate Occupations)
    • 'Social Class 3' (Skilled Occupations)
    • 'Social Class 4' (Partly Skilled Occupations)
    • 'Social Class 5' (Unskilled Occupations)
  7. For all other dates, the data have had to be re-classified as well as re-districted, by assigning categories to the extensive Occupation Tables to classes using our Codebook look-up tables.
  8. Currently "In_caz" information is not being entered for England and Wales in 2011, GLA data is not being entered for any years.
