The Scottish Household Survey (SHS) is a continuous survey based on a sample of the general population in private residences in Scotland. The survey started in 1999 and up to 2011 followed a fairly consistent survey design. From 2012 onwards, the survey was substantially redesigned to include elements of the Scottish House Condition Survey1 (SHCS) including the follow-up Physical Survey component. The survey is run through a consortium led by Ipsos MORI. Older questionnaires are available on the archived website.
