Introduction to the survey

What is the Scottish Household Survey

The Scottish Household Survey ( SHS) is a continuous survey based on a random

sample of the general population in private residences in Scotland. It is important in helping us make representative estimates both at Scotland, as well as at local-authority level. The survey started in 1999 and covers a wide range of topics to allow links to be made between different policy areas.

What does SHS provide?

The survey provides robust evidence on the composition, characteristics, attitudes and behaviour of private households and individuals as well as evidence on the physical condition of Scotland’s homes. The large scale of the SHS enables everyone using the survey findings to obtain a robust deeper understanding of issues by being able to analyse across key demographic household characteristics such as deprivation, age, income, gender, rurality, ethnicity and other equalities. This is crucial to informing the Fairer Scotland agenda, National Performance Framework and feeds in to the Scottish Surveys Core Questions ( SSCQ) sample.

Confidentiality

The Scottish Household Survey report is produced under the Code of Practice for Official Statistics. National Statistics are produced free of political interference, to agreed standards, and undergo regular quality assurance reviews.
