Scottish Transport Statistics No 30: 2011 Edition


This list covers errors which occurred in the preparation of the tables or the commentary in Scottish Transport Statistics. It does not include cases where statistics now differ from those in the previous edition, due to revisions by the supplier. Such revisions could occur following more information becoming available, or an improvement in estimation methodology, or the correction of errors in the supplier's own systems. In such cases, the revisions may be mentioned in the text or a footnote to the relevant table, if they are large enough to warrant this.

We apologise for the following errors, which we have found in the previous edition.

Paragraph 2.8, page 136 the first sentence should have read "In 2008-09, Glasgow Central was the busiest national rail station in Scotland, with almost 28 million passenger journeys, Glasgow Queen Street was used by nearly 19 million passengers, Edinburgh Waverley by 17.6 million……."

Table 3.8, page 82 the average years cover 2004 to 2009 rather than 2005 to 2009.

Table 9.3, page 190 the totals for Scotland should read Inwards - 23,272 , Outwards - 62,277 and Total traffic - 85,547 thousand tonnes.

Table 11.20, page 248 the 2008/09 figures for bus should have been 26 instead of 1, bicycle should have been 1 rather than 16 and other should have been 2 instead of 13. The 1998/99 and 2000/01 figures for bicycle should have been zeroes.

The tables in this edition include corrected figures, (if they are time-series tables that include years for which the previous edition's figures were wrong).

Any problems or inconveniences resulting from these errors are regretted.
