Variable : Agricultural Census Crop Categories, 1940-42

Variables serve as the dimensions of nCubes, and are generally based on the questions on forms such as the census schedule. However, in the aggregate data held in the Vision of Britain system we do not store the individual responses but counts of the number of each kind of response, so variables are made up of categories, such as age groups.

Agricultural Census Crop Categories, 1940-42
Variable (V)
A single report tabulated the results of the Agricultural Census (the "June Survey") from 1940 to 1944, but the figures listed in it changed slightly from 1943 onwards. Different categories were also used in 1939, so this exact set of crops was used only for 1940-42.
