Variable Group : Industry

Variable Groups are used to group together closely related variables. Under the DDI each system of categories is defined as a separate variable, so for example a variable categorising ages into five year bands running up to '95 and over' is a separate variable from one giving ages to '100 and up'. However, we group these into a single Variable Group covering ages.

Variable Group (VG)
This variable group brings together the different systems used for classifying enterprises by what they made or did. The first census to separate occupations, i.e. how a particular person made their living, and industries was that of 1921, so we often have to derive an industrial classification from an occupational one.
