Conjugal Condition at county and burgh level for Scotland in 1931
Approx. number of rows:
498
Table type:
Raw Data
Documentation Author:
Paula Aucott
Chronology:
The data cover the period 1881 to 1911.

Sources:

  1. These data were transcribed from Table 21, 'Quinquennial Age-Groups and Conjugal Condition for Scotland', in the Census of Scotland, 1931.
  2. The printed table does not include foot or end notes.


Notes:

  1. This is a selective transcription of the printed table. Four sets of information have been excluded. First, county District data has been excluded. Second, totals, formed by summing smaller-level units have been excluded. Third, data for both males and females has been excluded, although this may be calculated by summing male and female data. Fourth, age/sex data have been excluded. Users should consult the relevant age/sex tables for the latter data, and specifically the table age_cnty_1931_s.
  2. Users should note that this table contains TWO distinct spatial coverages - counties and burghs. The county coverage includes all of Scotland. The burgh coverage does not, being restricted to the largely urban burghs. Inclusion of both burghs and counties in any analysis will result in some double counting.
  3. This table was digitised by the Centre for Data Digitisation and Analysis, The Queen's University of Belfast.
  4. Belfast were unsure of the precise definition of the spatial units included in this table - hence they used the 'x_' suffix.
  5. The table within Oracle was indexed on the following fields: x_county, x_place and x_type.
  6. The data covers Cities, Burghs, Districts of County, Landwards and Aggregates of Burghs as indicated by area_type:
    • City (4 areas): Aberdeen, Dundee, Edinburgh and Glasgow
    • County (33 areas) figures exclude cities but include all burghs
    • Large Burgh (20 areas): These match those listed in the 1951 Industry Table
    • Small Burgh (167 areas)
    • District of County (190 areas)
    • CLandward (33 areas)
    Wards are not listed.


Checking:

  1. These data were verified by summing on a crosswise basis by case males in various conjugal conditions and comparing this total with total males and females in various conjugal conditions and comparing this total with total females.
  2. The geographical units have been cross-checked against the GBHGIS administrative unit gazetteer to ensure that all units are correctly identified. The unit names and types have been standardised. Each unit has a unique unit ID assigned to it and this can be used to cross-reference against other data-sets. Various rows relating to aggregates of burghs (36) and county rows (14) which give either total including the city or total excluding the burghs are not matched to the auo. Special notes:
    • Aberdeen city is listed partly in Kincardine county - this row has not been matched to the auo
    • Renfrew burgh is listed partly in Lanark county - this row has not been matched to the auo
    • Half of Aberdeen county appears to be missing
