Scottish Household Survey - Annual Report 2018 - LA Tables

Local Authority Tables 2018

Released on 8th October 2019 SHS logo (transparent)

The SHS Annual Report presents reliable and up-to-date information on the composition, characteristics and behaviour of Scottish households at a national level.

The SHS 2018 Local Authority Tables provide comparable information at sub-national level.

Single year data from 2012 to 2018 is included in the Excel workbook.  Only 2018 data is included in the PDF downloads.  As this release is using a single year dataset only, the sample sizes for some breakdowns are too small to allow for robust analysis. In these cases, some estimates within tables have been supressed and there are some tables that have been removed from the report entirely.

For further information on the SHS Annual Report 2018, please view our Annual Publications page.

If you have any enquiries about this or any other analysis requirements then please Contact us.
