Every year the Scottish Household Survey (SHS) asks adults whether they agree with the following statements about local authority services and performance.

• I can influence decisions affecting my local area

• I would like to be more involved in the decisions my council makes that affect my local area

• My council is good at letting local people know about the kinds of services it provides

• My council is good at listening to local people's views before it takes decisions

• My local council addresses the key issues affecting the quality of life in my local neighbourhood

• My local council designs its services around the needs of the people who use them

• My local council does the best it can with the money available

• My local council is good at letting people know about the kinds of services it provides

• My local council provides high quality services

The data is reported here on person level and is available by:

• Local Authority

• Age of the randomly selected adult

• Gender of the highest income householder. In the 2018 Scottish Household Survey the gender question was revised (In previous years interviewers asked if household members were 'male' or 'female'. In the 2018 survey the options given were: 'man/boy', 'woman/girl' and two additional responses: ‘identified in another way’ and ‘refused’. In order to remain harmonised with other Statistics.Gov.Scot datasets, the previous response options 'male' and 'female' will be maintained.)

• Urban/Rural Classification

• SIMD quintiles
