    COMPILER’S NOTES

    The Midlothian Profile is a compilation of statistical and other research information that has been

    previously published by a range of statutory and voluntary sector agencies and does not present

    primary research. References and hypertext links to the original sources are provided throughout.

    The 2011 census is the most recent, accurate description of demography and has been used where

    possible. Not all of the census data is available at the time of writing. Other information most recent

    at the time of publication has been used. The hypertext links can be used to search for updates to

    statistical data.

    Data presented in this document is based on several different geographies. These include, in

    descending order of area, local authority, intermediate geography, multi-member ward and

    datazone. These are described below and further explanation can be found where relevant in the

    text, or by contacting the principal editor.

    LOCAL AUTHORITIES

    INTERMEDIATE GEOGRAPHY

    The intermediate geography is a new geography used for small area reporting in Scotland.

    Intermediate zones are built from clusters of datazones and fit within Council area boundaries. Each

    intermediate zone contains at least 2500 residents.

    DATAZONES

    The datazone geography covers the whole of Scotland. Datazones are groups of Census output

    areas which have populations of between 500 and 1,000 household residents and some effort has

    been made to respect physical boundaries. In addition, they have compact shape and contain

    households with similar social characteristics. Scotland is divided into 6,505 datazones 112 of

    which describe Midlothian and are set out in detail in Appendix 1.
