nCube : Components of the Tress Index

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.

Components of the Tress Index
nCube (N)
Root unit:
Great Britain ( Show data )
Cube Display:
Non-additive nCube existing only to hold Tress Index data for display as rates. The values are themselves rates, so the Universe makes no particular sense.

nCube " Components of the Tress Index " 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:

Entity ID Entity Name
U_WORKERS All Workers

nCube " Components of the Tress Index " contains:

Variables, defining what data was gathered for :

Entity ID Entity Name
V_IND_TRESS_INDEX Components of the Tress Index of industrial specialisation

Components of the Tress Index: 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
IND_TRESS_INDEX:sic2007_18way 1 Tress Index from 18-way SIC2007
IND_TRESS_INDEX:sic2007_24way 1 Tress Index from 24-way SIC2007
IND_TRESS_INDEX:constant 1 Constant
