Scottish Household Survey - 2017 Local Authority Tables

 

The 2017 Annual Report Local Authority Tables were published on 30th October 2018.

 

The SHS 2017 Local Authority Tables present comparative analyses to those in the main annual report for each local authority, where appropriate. Results are presented in the format of tables and charts, without narrative, showing the results separately for each local authority alongside comparisons against the national average. These are available either through an interactive Excel workbook or as standalone PDF documents for each local authority.

 

The Excel workbook provides an opportunity for users to compare results for two local authorities at the same time and the ability to compare against previous years has been added to further enhance this resource.

SCOTTISH HOUSEHOLD SURVEY - Scotland's People - Annual Report 2017

 

The Scottish Household Survey - Scotland's People - Annual Report 2017 was published on 4th September 2018. 

 

The Scottish Household Survey (SHS) is a continuous survey based on a random sample of the general population in private residences in Scotland. Questions are asked face-to-face by an interviewer in homes all over Scotland.

 

Participation is voluntary, but is important in helping us make representative estimates for Scotland.

 

Scottish Household Survey Key Findings 2017

 

This is a summary of the Scottish Household Survey.  The survey provides robust evidence on the composition, characteristics, attitudes and behaviour of private households and individuals as well as evidence on the physical condition of Scotland’s homes.  The current scale of the SHS enables all users to obtain a robust deeper understanding of issues and performance, by being able to analyse across key demographic household characteristics such as deprivation, age, income, gender, rurality, ethnicity and other equalities. This is crucial to informing the Fairer Scotland agenda.
