Surveys Timetable

Surveys comparison and timetable

This timetable shows when each survey is collecting data in schools.  Most surveys sample schools and not every survey collects data in every school.

Each survey has its own distinct purpose. The comparison table shows that each survey asks different ages of children.  Where possible samples are co-ordinated between the Scottish Government funded surveys to make sure that as few as possible schools take part in multiple surveys.

This is not an exhaustive list of surveys which collect data in schools.  Academics and local authorities also collect data in schools.  Each has to seek permission from the Director of Education in the appropriate local authority area.
