Analysis of Equality Results from the 2011 Census, including Ethnicity, Gypsy/Travellers, Religion, Disability and BSL.
This Scottish Government report adds value to equality data published on Scotland’s Census website by the National Records of Scotland (NRS). It brings together relevant data from the census and other sources, and uses infographics to paint a picture of equality in Scotland. It is designed to be used by policy makers to evidence policy and Equality Outcomes, target services and help tackle discrimination.
The analysis focuses on the ‘cross-tab’ equality tables released throughout 2014 by the National Records of Scotland (NRS) and builds on the Scottish Government’s analysis of the univariate equality tables, ‘Overview of Equality Results from the 2011 Census Release 2’, published in March 2014.
This paper examines the following census topic areas: Population and Households; Ethnicity Identity, Language and Religion; and Health. Further topics, including Education; Labour Market; Housing and Transport, will be covered by a future paper.
