1. Some ScotStat users have signed up for more than one type of mailing list, so the ScotStat total includes some individuals twice. What we can say is that 1,748 ScotStat e-mails were sent out.

2. ClydePlan comprises the eight LAs of East Dunbartonshire, East Renfrewshire, Glasgow City, Inverclyde, North Lanarkshire, Renfrewshire, South Lanarkshire and West Dunbartonshire Councils who work together on strategic development planning matters.

3. 10 respondents did not select any topic from the social survey.

4. This only lists topics that respondents have mentioned in answering question 3ii and so it should not be treated as an exhaustive list. Particularly as a question on 'what topics are only available in the SHS?' was not directly asked and potentially respondents may not be aware of alternative sources.

5. The question on sexual orientation is a SSCQ question so data is also collected in the Scottish Crime and Justice Survey and the Scottish Health Survey.

6. 17 respondents either did not answer question 6i in the proforma or submitted a 'free text' response (e.g. letter). These responses were carefully reviewed by the analysis team to see if the 'option preferences' should be re-categorised as 'neither option', a specific option preference, or should stay as did not answer. This review was based on the content of their responses to questions four, five and 6(ii) where the standard proforma was used, or the whole of their response, where a 'free text' response was received. Reassigning was only undertaken when two team members agreed that their views could be clearly elicited from their response. This resulted in nine responses being categorised as 'neither option', two responses being preferences for option A, and six responses remaining as 'not answered'. These are reflected in Figure 3-1. It was noted that from responses to question four, five and 6(ii) that one respondent had clearly marked their preference incorrectly and so this was changed from option A to B. For another response, the research team got in touch with the respondent to clarify their preference and this was also changed from option A to B.

7. The SHS measures harassment and discrimination as it has a larger sample size than the Scottish Crime and Justice Survey.

8. Note: LGBF indicators are currently based on the general adult population.

9. For information, Rural Scotland Key Facts published by the Scottish Government, contains a 6 fold rural/urban breakdown for the condition of dwellings and 3 fold rural/urban breakdown of SHCS fuel poverty data.

10. Intermediate zone geographies contain an average of 4,000 household residents and are used to disseminate statistics that are not suitable for release at data zone level.

11. Those that said 'neither' option or did not answer question 6 (i) relating to Option A and Option B preferences are not shown in the chart due to the high percentage that did not answer question 8. This amounts to 17 responses in total.
