14. The random school child may be the same as, or different from, the random child.

15. 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.

16. 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.

21. A report on the development of the weighting procedures is available here:
www.scotland.gov.uk/Topics/Statistics/About/Surveys/WeightingProjectReport

22. 2012 estimates were used as the 2013 estimates were not available at the time the weighting was undertaken and is consistent with the 2012 SHS.

23. For details of the weighting in general, please see the SHS Methodology and Fieldwork Outcomes report:
www.scotland.gov.uk/Topics/Statistics/16002/PublicationMethodology

24. 2013 household estimates were published too late in summer 2014 to allow them to be used in the derivation of the SHS 2013 weights

25. For information on how this is derived, see Glossary – Annex 2.

41. It is important to note that this analysis is based on length of stay at address of the random adult rather than the highest income householder. This means that the table may underestimate tenure length because the random adult may not necessarily have lived in the property from the same date as the highest income householder (HIH). For example, the random adult may move in to an owner occupied household one year ago, but the HIH may have moved into the property five years ago

42. Column percentages are available in the supporting web tables (Table 3.5a)

57. Defined as 16-64 for males and females.

58. Adults aged over 16 and employed full time, employed part time or self employed

59. Including those in full or part time employment and the self-employed.

60. As defined using the Scottish Index of Multiple Deprivation - see Glossary in Annex 2.

61. Household income in the SHS is that of the highest income householder and their partner only. Includes all adults for whom household income is known or has been imputed.

62. 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.

63. Occupational pensions, other investments and other non-earned income such as maintenance payments or student grants.

64. During processing of the 2013 data the SHS team found a coding error which resulted in households with no income information being incorrectly included as having an equal mix of earnings. This has been resolved and these records excluded from the analysis for 2013.

65. As defined by the Scottish Index of Multiple Deprivation - see Glossary in Annex 2

66. During production of the 2013 Annual Report the SHS team identified a discrepancy which led to ‘Refused’ responses being included in the ‘£1,000+’ category for years 1999 – 2008. This resulted in previous versions of the SHS Annual Report reporting higher levels of households with savings (and lower rates of refusal to the questions). This discrepancy has been resolved and the full correct time series for 1999 to 2008 is included in Table 6.5 published alongside this main publication. Only the time series from 2009 is included in Table 6.5.

67. During production of the 2013 SHS Annual Report the SHS team identified a discrepancy for 2012 which resulted in respondents refusing to answer the question on bank accounts being incorrectly coded as ‘No’ showing the number of households with no bank account as 6 per cent in 2012 when it should have been 4 per cent as below.

102. SEABS was an in-depth survey undertaken among a quota sample of the Scottish adult population between August and November 2008, and involved interviews with 3,054 adults aged 16 years and over. It focused on environmental issues, with the climate change question located in the middle of the survey and preceded by other questions about the environment. The SHS is a broader survey in which the climate change question was a stand-alone.

108. The Scottish Recreation Survey (ScRS) was commissioned by Scottish Natural Heritage and between 2006 and 2012 was used to monitor progress on the Scottish Government's National Indicator to 'Increase people's use of Scotland's outdoors'. In 2013 ScRS was superceded by Scotland's People and Nature Survey (SPANS).This survey will run every third year and so can no longer provide the annual National Indicator update. A question on weekly visits to the outdoors was added to the Scottish Household Survey (SHS) in 2012, with a view to becoming the source of the National Indicator from 2013. Results from the three surveys may not be directly comparable.
