September 5, 2018 by No Comments | Category Uncategorized – open data monthly update is the open data platform for Scottish Official Statistics. You can explore, visualise and download 240 datasets. It provides data from a variety of organisations, such as the Scottish Government, National Records of Scotland, and NHS Information Services Division.

New datasets:

To begin with, we’ve published 5 datasets with school level education data: Breadth and Depth of Qualifications, Attainment for All, Leaver Count, Attainment by Deprivation, Literacy & Numeracy, and Positive Destinations.


You can also explore the educational establishments and groups in the Atlas. These are the first datasets about organisations that we have published, so we would welcome any feedback.
