This hierarchical treemap offers a visual representation of the relationship between the occupation of an individual and the value of their estate at their death. Occupations have been organised according to the HISCO classification system. The size of each rectangle is a visual indication of the number of samples currently held in the database which record both an estate value at death and an occupation. The colour of the rectangle offers a visual representation of the average estate value at death. The darker the blue, the higher the average value. (NB: This is true up to a maximum average value of £1000, after which all higher values remain coloured at the £1000 level. This helps prevent visual distortion of the colour scale by outliers).
