Comments:

1 The Scottish national totals presented here are totals computed from the county data.

Notes:

The following notes to the table appeared in the original report.

1 By the term 'School' is here meant a distinct Establishment. Thus a School for Boys and Girls, if under one general management and conducted in one range of Buildings, is regarded as only one School, although the tuition may be carried out in separate compartments of the Building under separate superintendence.

This website does not try to provide an exact replica of the original printed census tables, which often had thousands of rows and far more columns than will fit on our web pages. Instead, we let you drill down from national totals to the most detailed data available. The column headings are those that appeared in the original printed report. The numbers presented here, which are the same ones we use to create statistical maps and graphs, come from the census table and have usually been carefully checked.

The system can only hold statistics for units listed in our administrative gazetteer, so some rows from the original table may be missing. Sometimes big low-level units, like urban parishes, were divided between more than one higher-level units, like Registration sub-Districts. This is why some pages will give a higher figure for a lower-level unit: it covers the whole of the lower-level unit, not just the part within the current higher-level unit.
