Description

Number of bus passenger journeys and bus vehicle kilometres on all services in Scotland, number of passenger train stations in Scotland and figures for general convenience of public transport in Scotland from the Scottish Household Survey (SHS). Note that the public convenience data is now updated biennially.

Passenger journey numbers are collected by the Department for Transport (DfT) and published annually in Scottish Transport Statistics along with train station numbers, which are also collected by DfT.

The bus statistics presented here are collected through a survey by the DfT of public service vehicle operators, including all operators who are licensed with 21 or more license discs and only including local bus operators. Journey numbers are based on passenger boardings, so return tickets will be counted as two journeys.

Vehicle kilometres are for "live" (in-service) mileage and exclude empty running of buses, driver instruction and vehicle testing.

Estimates from the SHSurvey are updated annually in Transport and Travel in Scotland.

SHS estimates are National Statistics and provide figures which are representative of households and individuals in Scotland annually. The SHS has an annual sample size of around 10,000 individuals and, since 2012, has operated with a fully unclustered sample design.

Details
Confidentiality Policy

The SHS complies with statistical disclosure control principles and the Code of Practice for Official Statistics. It is therefore not possible to calculate how many respondents gave a certain answer based on the results of this survey.

Quality Management

Full details of the methodology and fieldwork outcomes for the SHS can be accessed at the Scottish Household Survey Methodology and Fieldwork Outcomes.

Accuracy and Reliability

Some tables include missing values. This is where the count on which percentages would be calculated is less than 50 and this data is judged to be insufficiently robust for publication.

Coherence and Comparability

The Scottish Government conducts several major population surveys that are used to inform the policy debate in Scotland and in some instances the surveys can be complementary. The Long-Term Survey Strategy 2018-2022, of which the SHS is a central element, aims to ensure that the Scottish Government’s population surveys continue to meet key information needs while maximising the analytical potential of the data they generate. A guide is available providing more information on Scotland’s surveys.

Accessibility and Clarity

A glossary of terms used in the SHS is available in the SHS annual report.

Relevance

The SHS is designed to provide reliable and up-to-date information on the composition, characteristics, attitudes and behaviour of private households and individuals, both nationally and at a sub-national level and to examine the physical condition of Scotland’s homes. It covers a wide range of topics to allow links to be made between different policy areas.

Timeliness and Punctuality

This dataset will be updated annually.

Revisions

The SHS is not subject to scheduled revision. Revisions and corrections to previously published statistics are dealt with in accordance with the Scottish Government Statistician Group corporate policy statement on revisions and corrections - a copy of which is available on the Scottish Government website.
