nCube definition


We combine here modern census statistics, based on people's occupations but classified according to the Market Research Society's system of Social Grades, with historical data reported using the broadly equivalent Registrar-General's Social Classification. Combining the two systems means we have to merge professionals and managers into Grade A/B; cannot divide skilled and supervisory workers into manual and non-manual; and must merge unskilled and semi-skilled manual workers with those on benefits, etc. Limitatio...


ns of the data reported in 1951 mean we can report only on male workers.
