nCube : Able-bodied paupers by gender & age

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 exact meaning of the term 'able-bodied', as used in the Poor Law system, is a matter of some controversy but is generally understood to exclude the aged and infirm, and 'lunatics', but to include large numbers who were temporarily ill. The system's reports consistently divide those receiving relief into Men, Women and Children.
