Scottish Health Survey

Series abstract

The Scottish Health Survey (SHeS) began in 1995, with subsequent surveys conducted in 1998 and 2003. From 2008-2011, commissioned by the Scottish Government, the survey has run continuously with a two stage process - a personal interview for the full sample, followed by a nurse visit to one sixth of the sample, whereas it was previously offered to the whole sample. The aim of the SHeS is to gain knowledge about the health of the population of Scotland.
