Newly released occupation and industry data at the UK Data Service

As previous indicated we’re overhauling our historical statistics held at the UK Data Service. Each dataset is released under new easier access licence conditions (CC-BY-SA), complementing the download options on our own Vision of Britain site. We’ve done more cleaning, where possible added our gazetteer ID numbers to ease dataset matching and added lots of extra data and tables. To find our data search for ‘gbhd’ in the UK Data Service catalogue: The latest material we’ve added all relate to occupation and industry from the Census.

SN 4559: We’ve re-released the very large collection of occupation tables adding extra data for 1861 and 1911 for England and Wales and Scottish data for 1861, 1881, 1911 and 1951.

SN 9020: We’ve added a new category for Industry tables which cover England, Wales and Scotland in 1931, 1951 and 1971. These are about the workplace itself, so the business of the employer rather than individual jobs.

SN 3706 has been permanently embargoed as all the material in its tables are now held within tables in the datasets above. The only table that wasn’t, “empl_1961_gb”, is now included in SN 4559.

    perhaps you already know this, but the certificate for Vision of Britain expired today, so is sounding off security alarms…

      Thanks. The certificate has already been renewed and is good until November next year. We’re looking into why it isn’t showing up as such.
