Derived from: COB9 (in ME91)
Study group: All enumerated at the 1991 Census
Other notes:

In the 1971 Census, respondents were asked for the country of birth of each parent as well as their own; however, the coding is much less detailed than that shown above.

Country of birth coding for 1991 includes two ambiguous categories:

(a) code 678 'Africa, remainder'; this has been included here in code 20, 'Other Central and West Africa'

(b) code 644 'New Commonwealth remainder'; here, this forms the category under code 46, 'Other Oceania'.
