Introduction

Gypsy/Travellers are a particularly marginalised group and suffer poor outcomes in many areas of life. The Scottish Government is committed to ensuring equality of opportunity for all of Scotland’s Gypsy/Travellers. To this end, a sound analytical evidence base is important and can be used to identify policy priorities, target services and tackle discrimination.

This report brings together analysis previously published in three separate analytical reports[1][2][3] to provide a comprehensive and wide ranging evidence base on Scotland’s Gypsy/Travellers. The previous analysis added value to equality data published initially on Scotland’s Census website by the National Records of Scotland (NRS)[4] and brought together relevant data from the census and other sources, using infographics to paint a picture of equality in Scotland.
