ScotStat is a network for users and providers of Scottish Official Statistics. It aims to improve communication amongst those interested in particular statistics and facilitate the setting up of working groups on specific statistical issues.
Periodic consultations are conducted on the statistics collected by the Scottish Government. Further information can be found in the Statistics Topic areas, or by viewing information on Statistical Planning. If you have any comments, queries or questions connected with Scottish Official Statistics please email the ScotStat Mailbox.
The register allows users and providers of Scottish Statistics to contact each other and consult on specific topics of interest. Registered users can consult on new collections, seek views on changes to existing collections and receive notification of new or forthcoming publications. Click here to access the register.
