Data zones are the core geography for dissemination of results from Scottish Neighbourhood Statistics (SNS). The data zone geography covers the whole of Scotland and nest within local authority boundaries (as they were in 2011).
Data zones are groups of 2011 Census output areas which have populations of around 500 to 1,000 residents. There are 6,976 2011 Data Zones. An Output Area to 2011 Data lookup is available from the 2011 Census Indexes section of the NRS website.
