Scottish Household Survey - Annual Report 2014 - LA Tables

SHS logo (transparent)Local Authority Tables 2014 

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 2014 Local Authority Tables provide comparable information at sub-national level.

Single year data from 2012 to 2014 is included in the Excel workbook.  Only 2014 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 have been removed from the report entirely.

For further information on the SHS Annual Report 2014, please view our Annual Publications page.

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


Local Authority Workbook - Full workbook

The LA Tables can be viewed via the interactive Excel workbook:

Please note that the full Excel workbook is very large (approximately 60 MB) though provides the opportunity to amend the presented analysis interactively and for the copying of content.   Due to the size of the spreadsheet we have also provided a split version below.  Alternatively, you may just want to use the PDF download options below which present the SHS 2014 results for each local authority separately.

Hints and Tips

Navigating the Excel tables

We have included a Guidance and Information worksheet within the Excel workbook which contains information on how to navigate the workbook and guidance on how to interpret results.  There are also notes within this section which explain the structure of the 2014 local authority tables and information on the notes included with some of the figures and tables.

Viewing the underlying data

Feedback on previous versions of the SHS LA Tables revealed that some users wanted quick access to data for all LAs rather than having to manually select each LA in turn. In response to this feedback, an “LA Raw Data” worksheet has been added to the Excel tables. This worksheet allows users to select the table of interest and then presents the underlying raw data for all LAs.
