Scottish Transport Statistics No 29: 2010 Edition

Has figures on (e.g.) road vehicles, traffic, accidents, bus and rail passengers, road and rail freight, air and water transport, finance, personal travel and international comparisons.


This list covers errors which occurred in the preparation of the tables or the commentary in Scottish Transport Statistics. It does not include cases where statistics now differ from those in the previous edition, due to revisions by the supplier. Such revisions could occur following more information becoming available, or an improvement in estimation methodology, or the correction of errors in the supplier's own systems. In such cases, the revisions may be mentioned in the text or a footnote to the relevant table, if they are large enough to warrant this.

We apologise for the following errors, which we have found in the previous edition.

Table 2.5 (b) Passenger revenue figures were incorrectly deflated.

Tables 1.17, 1.19, 12.13-12.15 (now 11.13-11.15) & 12.23-12.25 (now 11.23-11.25)SHS estimates prior to 2008 reflected the older weighting methodology.

Tables 5.1 & 5.2(now 4.1 & 4.2): Road length data for built-up roads in some councils was included twice, resulting in an overall local authority road total of 52,432 km instead of 51,841 km.

Table 6.9 (now 5.9): The category 'Other or not recorded' should have been 'Escort' and 'Escort' should have been 'Go home'.

The tables in this edition include corrected figures, (if they are time-series tables that include years for which the previous edition's figures were wrong).

Any problems or inconveniences resulting from these errors are regretted.
