Correction to Table A1 - 13 January 2017

We have recently become aware of errors affecting the fertility and mortality scaling factors for Scottish council areas in Table A1 of the sub-national projections for Scotland. This is because of an error in the code used to calculate the scaling factors for this individual table. This error only impacted the data in Table A1. We regret that until 13 January 2017 the data in this table was incorrect, and apologise to our users for any problems or inconvenience caused by our error.
