nCube definition


This classification is designed to permit data from the 1801 Crop Returns to be included with data from the annual Agricultural Census from 1866 onwards. The 1801 Returns were highly simplified, and varied in what they reported from one parish to another, so in practice we can consistently identify only three individual crops (wheat, rye and potatoes) and two pairings ("Barley and Oats", and "Peas and Beans"). Everything else has to be included in "Other". The 1801 returns also provided limited geographical cov...


erage: a great many parishes were missing from the data, and some additional parish names could not be identified, matched more than one parish within the named county, or lacked information on the county they were in. Nottinghamshire is completely missing. County totals include data for parishes that could not be identified. The national total for England includes parishes with missing county information. The national total for England is also used as the total for England and Wales, to permit the web site to present comparisons with national totals, even though the 1801 returns contain no data on Wales.
