Variable : Generalised Crop Categories

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.

Generalised Crop Categories
Variable (V)
This highly simplified classification of crops enables data from the 1801 Crop Returns to be combined with data from the June Census from 1866 onwards. The 1801 returns offer little detail anyway, so the only 1801 category that was widely reported then but is lost here is "Turnips or Rape".
