Footnotes

1. Data from 2007-08 Scottish Household Survey. The 2011 Census figure for the number of carers is lower due to differences in methodology for collection of the data

2. The 2001 Census identified over 16,000 young carers. The 2011 Census has yet to release data on the numbers of carers broken down by age. A PRTC study estimates there to be 100,000 young carers
