Variable : Housing Tenure

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.

Housing Tenure
Variable (V)
From 1961 the census has gathered data on whether households owned or rented their homes, and whom they rented from. This simplified categorisation can be applied to all available dates. Note that, because of how the data were reported in 1971, those renting from Housing Associations have to be grouped with those renting from private landlords.
