The Scottish Government has three large scale cross sectional population surveys (Scottish Crime and Justice Survey (SCJS), Scottish Health Survey (SHeS) and Scottish Household Survey (SHS)). Since the beginning of 2012 each of the surveys has included a set of 20 core harmonised questions. Responses on these questions from all three surveys have been pooled to provide a dataset with a sample size of around 20,000 responses annually. The Scottish Core Survey Questions include socioeconomic and geographic variables and perception questions on health, crime and police performance. This publication has been delayed from October 2015 to December 2015 due to staff resources.
