Sources:

  1. The information is taken from table 13, 'Private Households according to possession of certain household arrangements' for 'Administrative County, County Boroughs, and Urban Areas with 50,000 population or more', and table 14, 'Private Households according to possession of certain household arrangements' for 'Urban Areas with Population of less than 50,000 and Rural Districts', in the County Reports of the 1951 Census. The whole of Table 14 is computerised. Table 13 is selectively computerised to match the information available in 14. Omitted from this transcription are breakdowns of figures for: households comprising 1 - 6 or more persons, plus the total, households in single household dwellings occupying 1- 6 or more rooms plus the total and households sharing dwellings and occupying 1 - 6 or more rooms.


Notes:

  1. The information covers the whole of England and Wales and was entered in Portsmouth by Paula Aucott and Rachel Granville in Spring 2002. It gives information on the access of households to piped water, kitchen sinks, fixed baths, water closets and cooking stoves and if the access was shared.
  2. Only three local government districts had no information in the original table on their shared households, Tintwistle Rural District in Cheshire, Peterlee New Town in Durham and Trawden Urban District in Lancashire
  3. All the English counties except Bedfordshire, Essex, Cumberland and Westmorland have a note to say private households enumerated on houseboats were omitted from both table 13 and table 14.
  4. Only the Welsh counties of Anglesey, Cardiganshire, Caernarvonshire and Pembroke have a note to say private households enumerated on houseboats were omitted from both table 13 and table 14.
  5. This table was originally called hcond_1951. It was amended in January 2010 to be hcond_1951_ew to reflect more accurately the area covered by the content


Checking:

  1. For the section on piped water the number of households with shared and no piped water was added together then checked as a percentage of the total number of households.
  2. For the section on cooking stoves the number of households with shared and no piped water was added together then checked as a percentage of the total number of households.
  3. For the section on kitchen sinks the number of households with shared and no piped water was added together then checked as a percentage of the total number of households.
  4. For the section on Water closets the number of households with shared and no piped water was added together then checked as a percentage of the total number of households.
  5. For the section on fixed baths the number of households with shared and no piped water was added together then checked as a percentage of the total number of households.
  6. For the section on all five arrangements the number of households was checked as a percentage of the total number of households.
  7. For the section on exclusive use of stove and sink the number of households was checked as a percentage of the total number of households.
  8. For the section on shared or no bath with exclusive use of the other four arrangements the number of households was checked as a percentage of the total number of households.
  9. For the section on shared or no use of a sink and Water Closet the number of households was checked as a percentage of the total number of households.
  10. The original data in a few cases failed to meet these checksums. Our transcription is therefore as correct as possible given the errors in the original data.
  11. The data was also compared to the parish table figures for numbers of households and irregularities checked, those left unresolved are due to original errors.
  12. 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.
  13. Those geographical unit names that did not matched straightforwardly during the cross-checking were double checked against the original tables to verify the transcription accuracy and corrections made accordingly.
