The Scottish Surveys Core Questions (SSCQ) is an annual Official Statistics publication. SSCQ enables the production of reliable and detailed information on the composition, characteristics and attitudes of Scottish households and adults across a number of topic areas including equality characteristics, housing, employment and perceptions of health and crime.
The latest statistics from SSCQ relate to the 2015 collection period, published in November 2016.
Statistics from the 2014 collection period were released in May 2016. The main analytical report focuses on equality group themes and provides analysis of difference between groups, sub-national areas and changes over three years. A companion report was also published, examining patterns in confidence in policing using a novel statistical technique. It is therefore published as statistics in development.
The 2013 results were the first published with the Official Statistics label. A subset of data for 2012 was released in 2014 as experimental statistics. This is now superceded by the 2012 Official Statistics publication.
