A request to be provided with a special dataset can be submitted where the standard anonymised datasets do not contain all the information you require. This should allow users to undertake more detailed analyses for a specific project.
Such requests are made by completing the Scottish Household Survey special dataset pro-forma, which asks for the data specification needed to inform the decision on releasing the required information. Please also refer to the SHS Special Datasets guidelines document, which provides useful background information as to when and how you should apply for access to an SHS special dataset.
The pro-forma should be completed and submitted to either the SHCS Project Team, or the SHS Project Team.
A list of previously approved data requests is available from the SHS Website.
