When is further data expected to be available from Scotland's Census 2022?
Outputs from Scotland's Census 2022 will be published in phases. This reflects the additional work required to produce more detailed census statistics.
Population estimates - The first phase covers population and household estimates (September 2023) rounded (nearest 100) by local authority and age group (5-year age bands).
The next release will include unrounded population estimates by age and sex for small areas (output areas contain at least 50 people and 20 households). That release is planned for Spring 2024.
Topic summaries - In the second half of 2024 and first half of 2025, census data will be published for individual topics. This will begin to show a detailed picture of who lives in Scotland including information on ethnicity, religion, demography and migration, housing, education, labour market, health, disability and unpaid care.
