The Scottish Census

Report of Scottish Census for 1911

This Report will be issued in three volumes. The First Volume will deal more especially with information required for local administrative purposes, and with information of local interest. The Second Volume will contain information applicable to Scotland as a whole and, to a large extent, will be a summary of the First Volume, but with the omission of much local detail. The Third Volume will be devoted to special statistical studies, such as the fertility of married women, the occupations of foreigners, and the numbering of the infirm and such like.

The First Volume will be issued in 37 parts, the first four of them containing the Returns for the Cities of Edinburgh, Glasgow, Dundee, and Aberdeen, and the remaining 33 containing the Returns for the Counties exclusive of these cities. The county parts will be issued in alphabetical order.

Census of Great Britain, 1851
Religious Worship and Education in Scotland

Her Majesty’s Government decided that it was desirable, on taking the Census of 1851, to collect statistics as to the accommodation afforded by the various Churches and other Places of Public Religious Worship, and the number of persons frequenting them: also as to the existing Educational Establishments and the number of Scholars under instruction.

It was afterwards found that the Census Act did not render it compulsory upon any one to give information upon these points : the inquiry therefore was pursued as a purely voluntary investigation.

The following Tables relating to Scotland and the Islands in the British Seas are not so complete as is desirable ; but civil registration of Births, Deaths, and Marriages not having been established in Scotland, I have not had the same opportunity of supplying deficiencies in the Returns made from Scotland as has been afforded me in this country by means of the Registrars of Births and Deaths throughout England and Wales.

The superintendence of this branch of the Census has been intrusted by me chiefly to Mr. Horace Mann, who has given unremitting attention to the duty undertaken by him, and has executed it in a manner which, I trust, will be approved by your Lordship.

I have the honour to be,
My Lord,
Your faithful servant,
