Well at least it is helpful to be aware that these figures which the Scottish Government and Edinburgh Council use to plan and deliver services are approximate only.
Note: In relation to my earlier post addressing why it has taken so long to begin to produce the figures, I noted a document from August 2011 from the Census web site indicating the initial release of data was to have been in July 2012.
"NRS is working towards publishing the first census results in July 2012, two months earlier than the corresponding date for the 2001 Census"We are now five months behind that plan.
