nCube : Ownership of rough grazing land

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.

From 1940 onwards, the Agricultural Census distinguished between rough grazings on which a particular farmer had sole rights and areas of common. The areas given for the latter were based on separate estimates made by local officers.
