1 Scottish Government estimates based on analysis of 2015 Scottish House Condition Survey data.

2 Housing Statistics for Scotland - Key Information and Summary Tables, http://www.gov.scot/Topics/Statistics/Browse/Housing-Regeneration/HSfS/KeyInfoTables, and Scottish House Condition Survey 2015: Key Findings, http://www.gov.scot/Publications/2016/12/1539, para 46, table 8

3 Refer to Definitions of Protected Characteristics document for information on the characteristics

4 In respect of this protected characteristic, a body subject to the Public Sector Equality Duty (which includes Scottish Government) only needs to comply with the first need of the duty (to eliminate discrimination, harassment, victimisation and any other conduct that is prohibited by or under the Equality Act 2010) and only in relation to work. This is because the parts of the Act covering services and public functions, premises, education etc. do not apply to that protected characteristic. Equality impact assessment within the Scottish Government does not require assessment against the protected characteristic of Marriage and Civil Partnership unless the policy or practice relates to work, for example HR policies and practices.

5 See EQIA – Setting the Scene for further information on the legislation.
