14. AB Higher and intermediate managerial/administrative/professional

C1 Supervisory, clerical, junior managerial/administrative/professional

C2 Skilled manual workers

D Semi-skilled and unskilled manual workers;

E On state benefit, unemployed, lowest grade workers

15. In this chart the 'Other Asian' group includes 'Chinese' and covers all Asian ethnic groups except 'Indian' and 'Pakistani'

16. In 2011, separate 'White: Polish' and 'White: Gypsy/Traveller' categories were added within the 'White' section. For comparability with 2001, these categories are included within the 'White: Other White' group in this chart.

17. In this chart the 'Other Asian' group covers all Asian ethnic groups except 'Indian', 'Pakistani', 'Chinese' and 'Bangladeshi'

18. In 2011 a separate 'Arab' category was added within the 'Other Ethnic Group' section. For comparability with 2001, the 'Arab' category has been included within 'Other Ethnic Group' in this chart.

19. Level 1 = 'O Grade, Standard Grade, Access 3 Cluster, Intermediate 1 or 2, GCSE, CSE, Senior Certificate or Equivalent; GSVQ Foundation or Intermediate, SVQ Level 1 or 2, SCOTVEC Module, City and Guilds Craft or equivalent; Other school qualifications not already mentioned (including foreign qualifications)'

Level 2 = ' SCE Higher Grade, Higher, Advanced Higher, CSYS, A Level, AS Level, Advanced Senior Certificate or equivalent; GSVQ Advanced, SVQ Level 3, ONC, OND, SCOTVEC National Diploma, City and Guilds Advanced Craft or equivalent'

Level 3 = ' HNC, HND, SVQ Level 4 or equivalent, Other post-school but pre-Higher Education qualifications not already mentioned (including foreign qualifications)'

Level 4 = 'Degree, Postgraduate Qualifications, Masters, PhD, SVQ Level 5 or equivalent; Professional Qualifications (for example, teaching, nursing, accountancy); Other Higher Education qualifications not already mentioned (including foreign qualifications)'

20. The census reported a higher level of people with no qualifications than the LFS/ APS, and this is thought to be due to the self-completion nature of the census and the lower level of coverage on the census of the many different qualifications people may hold.

21. Summary Statistics For Attainment, Leaver Destinations And Healthy Living, no. 4: 2014 Edition - Attainment and Leaver Destinations: http://www.gov.scot/Publications/2014/06/9242

22. The 2011 Census tends to overestimate the level of those with low or no qualifications compared to the Annual Population Survey and Labour Force Survey. This is due to differences in mode of collection, context, coverage, questions asked and processing.

23. Within this category, less than 1 per cent of people were classed as living in a temporary structure (excluding 'White: Gypsy/Traveller' where the proportion was higher. See chapter 2).

24. Within this category, no more than 2 per cent of people were classed as living rent free.

25. This chart focuses on home ownership - it doesn't show change in the private rented and social rented sectors.

26. In 2011, separate 'White: Polish' and 'White: Gypsy/Traveller' categories were added within the 'White' section. For comparability with 2001, these categories are included within the 'White: Other White' group in this chart.

Also in 2011 a separate 'Arab' category was added within the 'Other Ethnic Group' section. For comparability with 2001, the 'Arab' category has been included within 'Other Ethnic Group'.

27. There are known quality issues around the tenure question in the 2011 Census, in relation to the recording of Council versus Housing Association Landlords.

This is explained more fully at http://www.scotlandscensus.gov.uk/variables-classification/tenure-household

30. HRP - Household Reference Person

31. In this chart the 'Other Asian' group covers all Asian ethnic groups except 'Indian', 'Pakistani', 'Bangladeshi' and 'Chinese'

32. 'Pakistani' and 'Indian' groups had a higher proportion of people in households with access to 3 or more cars or vans. It should be noted that people from minority ethnic groups were more likely to live in multi-family households. Therefore there may be more cars/vans per household because there are more families per household for these ethnic groups.

33. This includes both school children and university or college students

34. There are known quality issues around the number of people recorded as studying at home. For more details see http://www.scotlandscensus.gov.uk/variables-classification/transport-place-work-or-study
