nCube : Exclusive use of a W.C.

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.

Exclusive use of a W.C.: 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
HOUS_HAVE_WC:excl_wc 1 Exclusive use of W.C.
HOUS_HAVE_WC:share_wc 1 Shared access to W.C.
HOUS_HAVE_WC:no_wc 1 No access to W.C.
