Sources:

  1. These data were obtained from table "DC1104SC - Residence type by sex by age" for Local Authorities from the 2011 Census of Population. The data was downloaded on 17th November 2015 in spreadsheet format from the Standard Outputs part of the Scotland's Census website operated by the National Records of Scotland. They are under Crown Copyright, but are made available for use under an Open Government Licence.


Notes:

  1. The data contained a caveat about accuracy due to data protection. This may affect results from the check sums: "In order to protect against disclosure of personal information, some records have been swapped between different geographic areas. Some cell values will be affected, particularly small values at the most detailed geographies." More details on Census disclosure control strategy may be found on their page about Confidentiality.
  2. This table covers local authority units which in Scotland are Scottish Council Areas.
  3. The original data was downloaded as individual tabs for each Council Area in a single spreadsheet. Each tab was copied and pasted in a transposed format into a new single sheet to ensure the data matched the English and Welsh data as closely as possible.


Checking:

  1. The statistical data have not been checked
  2. The geographical units have been cross-checked against the GBHGIS administrative unit gazetteer to ensure that all units are correctly identified. The unit names and types have been standardised. Each unit has a unique unit ID assigned to it and this can be used to cross-reference against other data-sets.
