Industry statistics for all council areas in Scotland, based on place of work.
Approx. number of rows:
33
Table type:
Raw Data
Documentation Author:
Humphrey Southall
Chronology:
The data cover the period 1881 to 1911.

Sources:

  1. All data are taken from 2011 Census Table WP605SCca, downloaded from http://www.scotlandscensus.gov.uk/documents/additional_tables/WP605SCca.xls on February 28th 2016.


Notes:

  1. This table holds information for all Council Areas in Scotland, plus national totals which are the exact sums of the council area-level data.
  2. This table resembles the workplace-based 2011 data for England and Wales in that it provides no breakdown by gender, but further simplifies the industrial classification by
    • Providing no breakdown of the manufacturing sector.
    • Merging SIC2007 Sections R, S, T and U. This is a smaller problem, as the England and Wales table merges R and S, and T and U are both very small today. Note, however, that T is more important historically as it covers domestic service.
  3. Notes on the original table say:
    • [The data cover] All people aged 16 to 74 in employment in the area the week before the census.
    • Includes also residents of England, Wales and Northern Ireland aged 16 and over working in Scotland. Excludes residents of Scotland working outside Scotland or on offshore installations.
    • People who work mainly at or from home, or who have no fixed place of work, are included in the area of their usual residence.
