About the Dataset

About the Dataset

This dataset delivers a set of small area population estimates for Scotland that are consistent with the Registrar General's 1999 Mid-Year Estimates (MYE). The estimates are provided with SuperTABLE software to enable quick tabulation and manipulation of the dataset. The software, SuperTABLE, is the software procured for the tabulation of the 2001 Census Output. The dissemination of the dataset in this manner is an initial prototype for future census output to let users become familiar with the software and for National Records of Scotland to get a feel for any difficulties that users may have with the software. Feedback on the software should be forwarded to the address in the Feedback and Further Information section of this paper.

The minimum PC requirements for installing and running the SuperTABLE software are outlined at the start of the Chapter on Installation in the SuperTABLE reference guide. Table 2 provides a description of the files associated with the 1999 small area population estimates, and links for downloading the files. The information is also available on CD from customer services. If there are any difficulties with the installation or use of the material please contact our Statistics Customer Services on 0131 314 4299.
