Accuracy and Reliability

These figures are based on aggregating 2011 Data Zone data on a 'best fit' basis. This means that results for higher geographies such as Council Areas are estimates.

Best-fit simply means that when Data Zones are aggregated and assigned to a higher geography, they do not fit exactly into the boundary of the higher geography; instead they form an approximation to the shape of the boundary of the higher geography. For further information on best-fit for geographies, see National Records of Scotland Geography Policy on Best-fit and Exact-fit.

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 Scottish Parliament Constituency level.
