This publication contains the mid-2005 Small Area Population Estimates (SAPE) for Scotland.
The National Records of Scotland (NRS) has been involved in work to produce small area population estimates for a number of years and in October 2005 NRS published the mid-year SAPE at data zone level for 2001, 2002, 2003 and 2004. Further details of the background to the project and a description of the methodology used to produce the small area population estimates are available on the 2001-2004 Small Area Population Estimates, Scotland section of this website.
This report presents the mid-2005 estimates for data zones, by gender and five-year age groups [Footnote 1]. The estimates are consistent with the Mid-2005 Population Estimates Scotland for administrative areas.
