Variable : Having exclusive use of W.C.

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.

Having exclusive use of W.C.
Variable (V)
Between 1951 and 1991 the census reported on whether households had exclusive, shared or no use of a "water closet" (toilet). In 1971, households with access only to "outside water closets" were listed separately, and in 1991 inside toilets were required.
