Revisions & Corrections

All Scottish Government official statistics are governed by the Code of Practice for Official Statistics. One of the principles of the code is to publish "a Revisions Policy for those outputs that are subject to scheduled revisions" and where applicable, to "correct errors discovered in statistical reports, and alert stakeholders promptly".

This document sets out the principles used by the Scottish Government Statistician Group when dealing with planned revisions and corrections. It is expected that each topic area will produce specific policies for their own statistics, which should be referred to for more information.
