1. Victim status indicates whether a respondent was the victim of a crime as measured by the SCJS in 2010/11 (for further details of crimes included see Annex 3 of the 2010/11 Scottish Crime and Justice Survey: Main Findings or the accompanying Technical Report).

2. Tenure indicates the ways in which households occupy their accommodation and, where rented, the type of organisation from whom the property is rented:
a. Owner-occupier includes households who own outright and those buying with a mortgage or loan;
b. Social renter includes households who live in housing rented from a local authority, housing association or co-operative;
c. Private renter includes households who live in housing rented from an individual private landlord.

3. Multiple deprivation is measured by the Scottish Index of Multiple Deprivation: http://www.scotland.gov.uk/Topics/Statistics/SIMD.
