Errors in The Previous 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.

Table S4, page 23 The figure for air passengers to/from other countries should have been 13.84 million rather than 12.77 million.

Table 2.14, page 68 the figures shown for the councils from Dumfries and Galloway down to Eilean Siar were shown in the wrong order. A corrected version of the table is shown in the Excel spreadsheet here

Table 8.13, page 138 the figure for Scatsta is missing. It should have been 456 tonnes making the total 55,848 tonnes

Key points, page 172 text in first bullet point should have read ‘Local Authorities spent a further £860 million.’

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.
