Registrar General's Annual Review - Invited Chapters

Correction 11 August 2016
We regret that there was a small problem with Footnote 23 in the 2015 Invited Chapter. The web version of this has now been corrected. We apologise for any problems or inconvenience caused by our error.

Since 2002 there have been Invited Chapters included in the Registrar General's Annual Reviews. The chapters cover a variety of topics and the views expressed by the authors are of course their own, and do not necessarily reflect those of National Records of Scotland or the Scottish Government.
