Older people: data introduction

Most, if not all, health surveys and routine health data sources collect information relating to age. These pages signpost you to some of the key data sources and key points within them, including to prevalence and trend data.

Please note: If you require the most up-to-date data available, please check the data sources directly as new data may have been published since these data pages were last updated. Although we endeavour to ensure that the data pages are kept up-to-date, there may be a time lag between new data being published and the relevant ScotPHO web pages being updated.
