Industry data from the Scottish 1931 Census reclassified to the 2007 Standard Industrial Classification
Approx. number of rows:
3,990
Table type:
Derived
Documentation Author:
Humphrey Southall
Chronology:
The data cover the period 1881 to 1911.

Sources:

  1. This table holds data entirely derived from Table 16, 'INDUSTRIES OF MALES AND FEMALES, AGED 14 YEARS AND OVER, IN CITIES, COUNTIES AND LARGE BURGHS.', in Census 1931: Scotland: Occupations and Industries, as held in our table ind_1931_s, but reclassified to the 2007 Standard Industrial Classification.
  2. The table holds data for the same units as are in the source table, but NB the county figures are for residual areas after the figures for any burghs have been deducted.


Notes:

  1. Each of the detailed industrial categories listed in the source table has been assigned to one of the 'Divisions' in the 2007 Classification, using the ind_1931_codebook table. This table also includes the simpler SIC 'Sections'. so it can easily be grouped into those.


Checking:

  1. This table was derived programmatically from ind_1931_s, which has been carefully checked.
