Variable : Having exclusive use of Bath/Shower

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.

Between 1951 and 1991 the census reported on whether households had exclusive, shared or no use of a bath. In 1951 and 1971, the question specified a "fixed bath", and in 1991 a shower was included as an alternative to a bath.
