Scotland's Census 2011 Microdata published

National Records of Scotland have published a variety of microdata products from the 2011 census. Microdata are small samples of data for whole households and individuals, which include some associated census characteristics but no information that could identify a household or individual. Microdata products enable researchers to look at combinations of characteristics that are not generally available from the standard census tables, and to perform different types of analyses not possible from standard tabulations.
