Scottish Household Survey - Interactive Mapping


Example of content displayed in the SHS Interactive Mapping toolThe SHS Interactive Mapping tool presents time-series analysis from the survey for key measures across all local authorities in Scotland. 

The user is able to select the measure of interest including ones such as neighbourhood rating, car availability and provision of unpaid care.  All relevant analysis for the measure selected is displayed as a time-series in an accompanying chart along with thematic map showing differences in estimates between all local authorities.  Relevant metadata is also built in to the system to offer contextual information, as well as additional notes on the questions or variables used in the survey.

The measures presented in the tool will be updated periodically so please refer to this page for information on any updates.  If you would like to see any additional measures added that would be of interest to you, then please contact the SHS Project Team.

Please note that the SHS Interactive Mapping uses Visual Basic code to function properly.  As such you must select Enable Macros when prompted on opening the tool.
