Population estimates for various special areas can be accessed using the links below. Estimates for the special areas (except Settlements and Localities) are built up using the data zone level small area population estimates. Data zones do not always fit exactly into the boundaries of other geographical areas, so they are allocated on a best-fit basis. An evaluation of non-standard geography population estimates has been carried out to assess special area population estimates built up in this way.
Note: Special Area Population Estimates have not yet been updated with 2011 Census based figures. The latest data available are for mid-2011 based on rolling forward from the 2001 Census.
'Other special area population estimates derived from data zones can be found on the Scottish Neighbourhood Statistics website.'
