Scotland's Carers

A picture of the health, wellbeing, employment and demographic information of unpaid carers in Scotland.


The Scotland's Carers publication brings together statistical analysis from sources including Scotland's Census and the Scottish Health Survey, as well as research of caring to give a picture of carers' health, wellbeing, employment and demographic information. The first edition was published in 2015, and several update releases have since been issued.
