nCube definition


From 1884 onwards, The reports of the Local Government Board sub-divided their counts of able-bodied male paupers on outdoor relief into those relieved because of sickness and those relieved "for other causes". The main "other cause" was probably unemployment. Note that able-bodied female paupers were instead categorised into wives and widows.
