The Fourth Statistical Account of East Lothian

Miscellaneous population statistics

Census 1971, 1981 by Locality; East Lothian District Council 1981, 1991 figures, 1994 estimate, 1997 estimate and East Lothian Council 2001 figures by Settlement [Small Area Population Estimates]; Census 1991 Census Figures from Small Area Statistics [Table SO1 Population Bases]

Caution is recommended as comparison of data is problematic; no two sources collate the information in the same way; council and GRO data vary particularly erratically.

See www.gro-scotland.gov.uk under Demographic Statistics, General Information and Annex b for definitions of ‘settlements’ and ‘localities’ as used in the Census; however, GRO, ELDC and ELC definition of ‘settlement’ may not necessarily be the same.
