The Scottish Household Survey is a continuous survey based on a sample of the general population in private residences in Scotland. This report presents reliable and up-to-date information on the composition, characteristics and behaviour of Scottish households, both nationally and at a sub-national level.

Executive Summary

Provides household and individual information particularly to support the work of the Scottish Government's transport, communities and local government policy areas.

The survey started in 1999 and up to 2011 followed a fairly consistent survey design. From 2012 onwards, the survey was substantially redesigned to include elements of the Scottish House Condition Survey (SHCS) including the follow-up Physical Survey component.

Under the new survey design, it is now possible to produce some results at Local Authority level on an annual basis.
