nCube : Standardised Industry Data

nCubes hold all the statistics presented by the Vision of Britain system, and are defined as combinations of variables. For example, the age-sex tables that appear in most census reports are held as two-dimensional nCubes in which one dimension is a variable categorising sex and the other variable defines a set of age groups. nCubes can have many dimensions, such as age by sex by occupation by cause of death, or just one.

Industry data re-organised to the categories used in the 2001 Key Statistics. These always cover workers living in an area, not those working in it, which can make a big difference for areas that many people commute into or out of.

nCube " Standardised Industry Data " is contained within:

Themes, which organise the database into broad topics:

Entity ID Entity Name
T_IND Industry

Universes, definining what the values in datasets add up to:

Standardised Industry Data: Data map listing

Each of our datasets, or nCubes, combines one or more variables (Var) each of which consists of a set of categories. The data map lists all the possible combinations of categories. The cell references are the identifiers held in our main table of statistics, recording what each number measures.

Cell Reference Var Category Value
INDUSTRY_2001:ag 1 Agriculture
INDUSTRY_2001:min 1 Mining
INDUSTRY_2001:man 1 Manufacturing
INDUSTRY_2001:con 1 Construction
INDUSTRY_2001:util 1 Utilities
INDUSTRY_2001:serv 1 Services
