Variable : 2011 Industrial Classification

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.

2011 Industrial Classification

This classification of "employer's business" is that used in Table WP605EW, "Industry (Workplace population)", the most detailed listing of industrial structure published from the 2011 Census of England and Wales. Most categories are the Sections in the UK Standard Industrial Classification of Economic Activities (UKSIC 2007), identified by letters, except that Sections R, "Arts, entertainment and recreation", and S, "other service activities", are combined.
