Please note: the Scottish Government (SG) is now the only publisher of new statistics of Divorces and Dissolutions of Civil Partnerships for Scotland. National Records of Scotland (NRS) no longer publishes any new figures for Divorces or Dissolutions. As explained on the 'home page' for 'Divorces and Dissolutions' section of the NRS website, such statistics are available from the SG website.
The spreadsheet that is provided below gives, purely for the record, the figures that were published by NRS, and formerly by the General Register Office for Scotland (GROS). Please note that this spreadsheet will not be revised: the figures it contains will remain as published by NRS at the time, even if SG revises the figures on its website for 2011 or earlier calendar years.
When opening the spreadsheet file your browser, depending on how it's been configured, will prompt to either open the file or save it to disk.
Tables are mainly offered for the purposes of extracting figures. Due to the size of some of the files they are not recommended for printing.
If you experience difficulty downloading the files. Please contact our Statistics Customer Services using our Contact Form and request a disk with the full file.
