These population projections, produced by National Records of Scotland (NRS) are forecasts based on a range of assumptions about underlying demographics and should be treated with caution. The projected populations can change quite substantially between revisions, which are published every two years.

The projections shown are the principal projections rather than variant projections that NRS also produces. For more detailed information go to the National Records of Scotland population projections pages.
