Scottish Surveys Core Questions 2013

The SSCQ gathers survey responses from identical questions in the Scottish Crime and Justice Survey, the Scottish Health Survey and the Scottish Household Survey into one output. SSCQ provides reliable and detailed information on the composition, characteristics and attitudes of Scottish households and adults across a number of topic areas including equality characteristics, housing, employment and perceptions of health and crime, and enables detailed sub-national analysis.

15. Note: the health domain in SIMD accounts for 14% of the overall SIMD ranking and is based on NHS administrative data (see list of SIMD Health Domain indicators: http://simd.scotland.gov.uk/publication-2012/technical-notes/domains-and-indicators/health-domain/. Indicators in this domain are likely to be correlated with long-term sickness or disability. Two indicators in the employment domain (counts of Incapacity Benefit and Severe Disablement Allowance claimants) are also likely to be correlated with long-term sickness or disability. The total employment domain constitutes 28% of SIMD.

42. This equates to half the SCJS sample and enables a consistent sample size in each SSCQ publication for 2013-15, while the SCJS is produced biennially on a financial year basis. From 2016/17 onwards, the SCJS will be produced annually, which will enable data pooled on a calendar year basis. A revised set of 2012 tables will pool the first and second quarter of SCJS2012/13 and will be released in spring 2016. This will replace the 2012 publication which currently pools the first three quarters of SCJS2012/13 by calendar year.

44. SSCQ individual respondent variables are self-assessed general health, limiting long-term health conditions, smoking, highest achieved qualification, economic activity, country of birth, ethnic group, religion, marital status, sexual orientation, gender and age
