Great Britain Historical Database: Census Data: Marital Status Statistics, 1931


Abstract copyright UK Data Service and data collection copyright owner.The Great Britain Historical Database has been assembled as part of the ongoing Great Britain Historical GIS Project. The project aims to trace the emergence of the north-south divide in Britain and to provide a synoptic view of the human geography of Britain at sub-county scales. Further information about the project is available on A Vision of Britain webpages, where users can browse the database's documentation system online.

The British census reports generally cross-tabulated age against marital status as well as gender, but the transcriptions in the Great Britain Historical Database are generally limited to age and gender, enabling the construction of population pyramids. This dataset is a quite separate transcription limited to marital status, or "conjugal condition", and gender, held only for Scotland in 1931.Latest edition informationFor the second edition (August 2022), the data and documentation files were replaced with updated versions.

Main Topics:

Conjugal Condition at county and burgh level for Scotland in 1931. Please note: this study does not include information on named individuals and would therefore not be useful for personal family history research.
