South Leith : Census Tables

census image

The statistical themes listed on the South Leith home page are based mainly on census information and show how the Scottish Parish changed over time. This page gives you access to the Census Reports section of the website, which reconstructs selected original tables, but takes you straight to listings for South Leith, which may also cover lower level units within the Scottish Parish.

These listings show the statistics used in the theme pages in their original context, but they sometimes also include additional statistics which we have not yet included within the themes, such as much more detailed occupational categories. This is probably part of the site to explore once you have had a good look at our statistical themes, which do more of the work for you.
