nCube : All occupied persons, in 3 Categories

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.

The early censuses 1801-31 used this very simple classification of occupations. It is unclear which persons were instructed to be included, but in 1801 the total of the three occupational categories exactly matched the total population in most parishes. This may explain why from 1811 onwards the British census applied the classification to families rather than persons, although the Irish census continued to count persons.
