Table type:
Raw Data
Documentation Author:
Humphrey Southall
Geography:
Reporting units are identified by:
   Administrative County
   Local Government District
   Local Government District Type
Chronology:
The data cover the period 1881 to 1911.

Sources:

  1. The data are taken from tables 25, 'Occupied Population in 3 age sections by 5 terminal ages', for 'Administrative County, County Boroughs, Urban Areas with 50,000 Population or more and Urban \Echoainder', and 26, 'Occupied Male Population by 5 terminal ages', for 'Urban Areas of Less than 50,000 and Rural Districts'. It is a full transcription of table 26, but a very partial transcription of table 25 which includes data for women, and for two specific age bands: occupied persons under 20, and occupied persons aged 20-24.


Notes:

  1. NB these data relate to males only, although data on female education was pubished for towns over 50,000.
  2. The occupied population includes persons returned as "out of work" but excludes persons returned as "retired".
  3. This data covers only England and Wales.
  4. This table was originally called edu_1951. It was amended in January 2010 to be edu_1951_ew to reflect more accurately the area covered by the content


Checking:

  1. The data were checked to ensure that figures for individual age groups summed to the stated figure for 'all ages' (see constraint below).
  2. The data have been cross-checked against the 1951 age structure data, to ensure that the districts listed are identical.
  3. The data have been cross-checked against the 1951 occupational data as summarised in 'occ_1951_ew' to ensure that the sum of 'all_ages' and 'age_ns' is equal to the figure for the total number of occupied males ('tot_occ').
  4. The geographical units have been cross-checked against the GBHGIS administrative unit gazetteer to ensure that all units are correctly identified. The unit names and types have been standardised. Each unit has a unique unit ID assigned to it and this can be used to cross-reference against other data-sets.
  5. This data set is now believed to be error free.
