A survey of the people of Scotland
The survey is designed to provide accurate, up-to-date information about the characteristics, attitudes and behaviour of Scottish households and individuals on a range of issues. For more information, please see our Survey Details pages.
The purpose of this website is to provide some background to the survey, to keep interested parties up-to-date with the progress of the survey and to provide summary information on the outcomes from the survey as the results become available. Please refer to our Publications page to get a run-down on the regular series of outputs we produce. Our How to get Results pages outline the processes involved in accessing SHS data for secondary use.
