* The classification of Occupations adopted in 1871 is essentially identical with that of 1861. The only variations of importance occur in Classes II. and VI.

The change has had the effect of bringing now into Class II., Order 4, all Women (Wives, Widows, Daughters, or others) who have no specified occupation, but are usuallv
employed in household duties. In 1861 the Wives of Innkeepers, Publicans, Lodging-house-keepers, Shopkeepers, Shoemakers, Butchers, and Farmers were placed iii
the same orders (namely, 6, 6, 8, 11, and 12) as their Husbands, whom they often assist in business ; but this, it must be borne in mind, is the case with other as well as
with such Wives. As it may be assumed the great majority of Women of no specified occupation are mainly employed in Household and Family Duties, thev are all
classed together in these Tables. ^ l j -i , oj. mo d,u

Class VI. now comprises Persons whose occupations are indefinite or not stated. Persons of Rank or Property not returned under any office or occupation, and Scholars
and Children under the age of 16. Thus Scholars and Children under the age of 15 not returned as engaged in any directly productive occupation, now form bv themselves
OrderlS; whereas m 1861 they were grouped under Class II., Order 4. Students and Scholars of ages is and upwards are now in Class I., Order 3; in 1861 thev wpvp
included m Class 11. n x- , v u^cj ^^^.l^,

With the foregoing exceptions no changes of importance have been made in the various Sub-Orders, Orders, and Classes of the classification of 1861.

Note.— The number of persons referred to the particular Classes, Orders, and Sub-Orders must not be taken to represent the" total number following the Occunations
included therein ; for example, in addition to the persons returned in Class IV., Order 8, many persons connected with the land as Proprietors or Occupiers are rlnsspd
under other heads according to the Occupations in which they are principally engaged. See notes at foot of Table 11. i- v ^ » o i.itmoou
