1. SMEs are defined as those employed in organisations of fewer than 250 employees, including the self-employed. The Department for Business Innovation and Skills estimated that in 2015, 47.5% of those in employment in Scotland were employed in an SME (including the self-employed). [ https://www.gov.uk/government/statistics/business-population-estimates-2015]

5. With HADS, a higher score suggests poorer health, meaning that if cases improve in their score, the change should have a negative sign. However, to make the interpretation simple, the sign has been reversed; therefore, in all the HADS analysis a positive sign implies improvement in HADS scores.
