Three areas of Scotland have been selected for a rehearsal to help National Records of Scotland deliver a successful census in 2021.
NRS has committed to carrying out further testing around the sex question and guidance. We have asked ScotCen Social Research to conduct a survey to test questions that may be included in Scotland’s Census 2021. The aim of the survey is to see whether these questions are acceptable, easy to complete and produce reliable data.
Following the publication of our Plans for Scotland’s Census 2021, NRS have undertaken further investigation into a limited number of requests which were made for the ethnic group response options to be reviewed and/or additional information to be collected.
