nCube definition


Here we hold a variety of population totals enabling numbers of persons receiving different categories of welfare benefits to be expressed as appropriate rates. These population totals are computed from the reports of the Census of Population, but need to be held for the dates of the welfare counts; in the case of the Poor Law system, this means the 1st of January and the 1st of July in each year. The data have therefore been interpolated using statistics from the censuses before and after the welfare reporting date.
