'Taking Scotland's 2001 Census - A Review' is the Registrar General's assessment of how the census in Scotland measured up against its strategic aims:
to ensure that the question content is appropriate to meet the demonstrated requirements of users;
to deliver products and services to meet legal obligations and users' needs within stated quality standards and to a pre-defined timetable;
to ensure that all aspects of the census data collection operation and the dissemination of results are acceptable to the public and comply with Data Protection law; and
to demonstrate that the census represents value for money.
