Population Estimates for Scottish Centenarians

Population Estimates for Scottish Centenarians


Access to previous publications of the population estimates of those aged 90 and over for Scotland.

Note 1: One consequence of the method used to calculate these estimates is that each year the estimates for earlier years become more accurate as more death data become available to inform age profiles. As such the data referenced in previous publications has been superseded by the data in the latest publication .

Note 2: A section highlighting the differences between centenarian population estimates which were based on the 2001 Census, and the estimates which were based on the 2011 Census can be found in the publication Centenarians in Scotland, 2002 to 2012 published below. 

Note 3: The estimates for 2012 to 2014 are based on the corrected estimates for those years published in April 2016. More information is available from the mid-2012, mid-2013 and mid-2014 corrected tables section of this website.
