Variable : Total Area (for Farm Census)

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.

Total Area (for Farm Census)
Variable (V)
This variable is used to record the total area of a reporting unit when working with Agricultural Census or similar data, such as the 1801 Crop Returns. The Agricultural Census usually provides such a figure, but elsewhere it has had to be estimated from other sources. NB this will usually be a different figure from the total for all crops, or even the total acreage for the farms within the unit.
