Revision: 27 February 2014

The migration estimates published in tables 4c and 5c will not match exactly some of the detailed migration tables for the year 2012 which were published in February 2014. This is because, when compiling these detailed tables, a minor error was discovered in the previously published mid-year estimates. As the impact of this error is negligible on the migration estimates and has no impact at all on the population estimates we have not corrected the estimates used in this publication. The very small error only affected migration estimates for 5 Council areas (East Dunbartonshire, City of Edinburgh, Glasgow City, Stirling, and West Lothian) and four NHS Board areas (NHS Ayrshire & Arran, NHS Borders, NHS Dumfries & Galloway, and NHS Lanarkshire) with a maximum difference of 5 people in one Council area and 3 people in two of the NHS Board areas for the net migration estimates
