Variable : Total Households

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 Households

Total number of households. The definition has changed over time, but in general is based persons sharing a separate front door. Some censuses provide data for previous years so this variable allows for lagged values.
