Scottish household survey 2019: supplementary analysis

A compilation of the ad hoc queries for data from the Scottish Household Survey (SHS) received in 2020 during the COVID-19 crisis, updated with the latest data from the 2019 SHS.


The Scottish Household Survey team offer an ad hoc query service where users can ask for bespoke tables or statistics which are not routinely published in our annual reporting.

All our national and local authority figures are now contained in the new Data Explorer. This allows interactive comparisons between Scotland and different local authorities and also between local authorities.

In 2020 during the COVID-19 crisis, Scottish Household Survey data was used in many ways. In the spirit of open and accessible information, this publication uupdates the queries we have answered with 2019 data and makes them available to all.

Over the last 3 years (2017, 2018, 2019), the Scottish Household Survey team has averaged around 60 requests per year. If a question is asked more than once, then we consider adding it to our standard set of published tables.

So far in 2020 we have answered 53 queries, and are likely to be over the average of 60 by the end of the year.
