Scottish Transport Statistics No 33 2014 Edition

Errors in the Previous 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 error, which we have found in the previous edition.

Summary table, page 13 figures for air passenger numbers should have been shown as 25.1 million for 2007-08 and 22.2 million for 2012-13

Figure 3.3, page 84 the figure for road freight moved in 2008 should have been 13,936 instead of 15,936 million tonne kilometres

Table 4.6, page 107 The figures for 2013-14 were mistakenly shown as 2012-13 in the publication last year. The correct figures for 2012-13 can be found in the chapter 4 dataset for the current publication which can be found here

Table 7.12, page 159 An error was identified in the formulae which calculate the rows with figures for freight moved elsewhere in the UK and by other commodity moved. The figures have been revised for all years. The relevant figures on the summary page 36 have also been updated. The figure for freight lifted elsewhere in the UK for 2011-12 should have been 4.47 and not 2.21 million tonnes. The figure for other commodity changes from 3.43 to 5.69 million tonnes.

Table 7.17, page 160 Strathclyde Partnership for Transport have discovered an error in the way loaded train kilometres were calculated. The figures have been revised for previous years.

Table 7.20 page 161 The column headings for ‘Strongly disagree’ and ‘tend to disagree’ were wrongly allocated.

Table 8.1 page 169 The terminal passenger numbers for HIAL airports did not include Dundee. The figures for Dundee airport were included in the ‘other airports’.

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.
