16. The random school child may be the same as, or different from, the random child.
17. Adults who are household members but have been living away for the previous six months are excluded from the selection of the random adult. Children and students living away during term time are counted as household members but are excluded from the random adult and random school child selection.
18. Where the same person completes both parts one and two (i.e. they are both the household respondent and selected as the random adult) the CAPI (Computer Assisted Personal Interviewing) script does not repeat the questions common to both sections. This means that these respondents are not asked for the same information twice.
20. Further information on the sample designs and the methodology uses is available here: www.scotland.gov.uk/Topics/Statistics/About/SurveyDesigns201215
21. These are mainly vacant or derelict addresses, or occasionally those without any private dwellings (such as businesses).
23. A report on the development of the weighting procedures is available here: www.scotland.gov.uk/Topics/Statistics/About/Surveys/WeightingProjectReport
24. 2011 estimates were used as the 2012 estimates were not available at the time the weighting was undertaken.
25. For details of the weighting in general, please see the SHS Methodology and Fieldwork Outcomes report: www.scotland.gov.uk/Topics/Statistics/16002/PublicationMethodology
26. 2012 household estimates were published too late in summer 2013 to allow them to be used in the derivation of the SHS 2012 weights
27. For information on how this is derived, see Glossary - Annex 2.

51. It should be noted that the SHS is not designed to provide reliable statistics on average income. Household income in the SHS is the income of the highest income household and partner only, and so is not directly comparable to the Family Resources Survey (FRS) - the official source of income data in the UK.
53. Arguably, the definitions mean different things to different respondents i.e. 'deep financial trouble' or 'managing well' are quite subjective terms. Combining all the broadly positive and broadly negative responses controls for some of the differences in interpretation between different positive and negative responses.
54. Occupational pensions, other investments and other non-earned income such as maintenance payments or student grants.

92. For example, a survey result with a confidence interval of ±2% at the 95% level means that the 'true' population value lies with 2% either side of that result. If the survey was repeated 100 times, the proportion would be within the confidence interval quoted.
