The latest annual mid-year population estimates of those aged 90 and over for Scotland. This section also includes historical data back to 1981 as a time series dataset. More detailed information on the population of Scotland can be found in the Mid-Year Population Estimates section of this website.
Note 1: One consequence of the method used to calculate these estimates is that each year the estimates for earlier years become more accurate as more death data become available to inform age profiles. As such the data referenced in the archive has been superseded by the data in the latest publication.
Note 2: A section highlighting the differences between centenarian population estimates which were based on the 2001 Census, and the estimates which were based on the 2011 Census can be found in the publication Centenarians in Scotland, 2002 to 2012 published in the archive below.
