1 Including the Culture and Sport module interviews were conducted with 34,610 householders and 31,391 random adults.

3 A small subset of questions, designed to establish the prevalence and frequency of participation in a range of cultural and physical activities were included in the main survey in 2007/2008; the results are presented in this report ( chapter 13).
5 As defined by the Scottish Index of Multiple Deprivation - see Glossary in Annex 2.
6 The random school child may be the same as, or different from, the random child.
7 Adults who are household members but have been living away for the previous six months are excluded from the selection of the random adult. Children and students living away during term time are counted as household members but are excluded from the random adult and random school child selection.
8 Where the same person completes both parts one and two (i.e. they are both the household respondent and selected as the random adult) the CAPI (Computer Assisted Personal Interviewing) script does not repeat the questions common to both sections. This means that these respondents are not asked for the same information twice.
10 These are mainly vacant or derelict addresses, or occasionally those without any private dwellings (such as businesses).
11 The mid-year estimate for the second year of each two-year sweep is used for this so for 2007/2008 the relevant population estimates were the mid-2008 estimates published in April 2009. http://www.gro-scotland.gov.uk/statistics/publications-and-data/population-estimates/mid-2008-population-estimates-scotland/index.html
12 In households where there is only one adult, that person has 100% chance of selection for part two but where there is more than one adult, the probability of a particular person being selected is less. This has been taken into account in the weighting.
13 The 2007/2008 survey estimates that there were 724,116 school children in Scotland. The 2007 schools census estimates that there were 723,196 school children across both the local authority and independent sectors.
18 A full explanation of the multivariate analysis used in the report is provided in Annex 5; for an example of the variables on which this analysis has been conducted see results presented in chapter 11, Local Services, on the use of green space.

25 For information on how this is derived, see Glossary - Annex 2.
26 The proportion of adults aged 16-24 has increased from the 10% shown in the 2007 SHS annual report. This is likely to be as a result of changes to the SHS weighting introduced in 2009.

48 Defined as 16-64 for males and 16-59 for females, using the age at which the state pension is currently paid as the upper limit.
49 By removing the 34% of respondents with a long-standing illness or disability in the 'yes' column shown in Table 5.2 and re-percentageing all other figures on the resulting reduced base size.
51 It should be noted that the SHS is not designed to provide reliable statistics on average income. Household income in the SHS is the income of the highest income household and partner only, and so is not directly comparable to the Family Resources Survey ( FRS) - the official source of income data in the UK.
52 Arguably, the definitions mean different things to different respondents i.e. 'deep financial trouble' or 'managing well' are quite subjective terms. Combining all the broadly positive and broadly negative responses controls for some of the differences in interpretation between different positive and negative responses.
53 Occupational pensions, other investments and other non-earned income such as maintenance payments or student grants.
54 For example dividends, interest and rent.

86 Household income was less useful in segmenting groups, compared with economic activity and tenure due to missing data.
87 See, for example: http://www.equalityhumanrights.com/your-rights/disability/
88 These households contain two adults, at least one of whom is of pensionable age.
89 The comparable figure from the SHS 2007 Annual Report was 28% for the private rented sector; this difference is due to the new weighting strategy implemented in 2009.
90 Single adults, single parents and single pensioners.
91 As defined using the Scottish Index of Multiple Deprivation - see Glossary in Annex 2.
92 Tenure is used in preference to income as there is missing income data. Also, in test models using income, income fails to segment the categories and appears as a lower level factor.
93 This node has the strongest relationship, although the percentage saying good is lower than the following two groups, it is the most strongly different from other segments aged 60-74. The strength of the relationship will also be affected by the number of cases.
94 Respondents are classed as having been physically active if they have walked or cycled for 30 minutes or done other sports in the previous four weeks.

113 Though the CHAID analysis identified that having a disability or health problem or not, as well as respondents' self-reported health, are both important in influencing greenspace use among specific groups of people.
114 Although it should be noted that the base number of 107 in the response category 'at school' is much lower than the base numbers for most of the other response categories. The category 'unable to work due to short-term illness' also has a small base number.

117 A small number of questions were asked of the random adult in the main SHS sample. The results from those questions are the subject of this chapter. As noted in Chapter 1, questions on culture and sport were also included in a separate, boost, module. Results from the culture and sport module will be reported at a later date.

125 Where 'don't know/refused' options are not shown as a separate category in the table, the base will still include respondents who give those answers.
126 For example, a survey result with a confidence interval of Â±2% at the 95% level means that the 'true' population value lies with 2% either side of that result. If the survey was repeated 100 times, the proportion would be within the confidence interval quoted.
