Description

This dataset provide the numbers and rates of fires in Scotland down to datazone level. Data is provided for the total number of fires, including accidental and deliberate causes.

Data is entered by the Scottish Fire and Rescue Service into the Incident Recording System. This dataset is an extract from this live management information system, and thus may differ slightly from other extracts taken on different dates such as the statistics published on the Scottish Fire and Rescue Service website.

Details
Confidentiality Policy

Information at data zone level has been disclosure controlled with data swapping in some data zones. Swapping data for a small percentage of records before producing the aggregate results at Local Authority level has a negligible effect on the overall trends, but ensures the confidentiality of individual records.

The full disclosure control policy for fire statistics can be found on the Scottish Government website.

Quality Management
Not supplied
Accuracy and Reliability

Data is recorded by the fire service officer in charge of an incident and is grid referenced. Care should be exercised in using the small geography data as low numbers of fires and some small populations can produce atypical outputs

Coherence and Comparability

Some fires could only be attributed to Local Authorities, and not lower level geographies. Therefore, the sum of fires for lower level geographies will not match those at Local Authority or Scotland level.

Accessibility and Clarity
Not supplied
Relevance
Not supplied
Timeliness and Punctuality

Incidents should be reported within 2 weeks of occurrence though completion may take longer depending on investigations etc. Data is published as provisional and revised the following year.

Revisions

In February 2019, we updated our methodology for allocating datazones to higher geographies to align with Government Statistical Service Geography Policy. This resulted in revisions to some aggregated figures at Electoral Ward and Scottish Parliament Constituency level.
