This layer shows the population density (persons per hectare) estimate by locality. The estimate is derived from the report "Mid-2012 Population Estimates for Settlements and Localities in Scotland" by General Register Office for Scotland (GRO) / National Records of Scotland (NRS). Localities correspond to the more recognisable towns and cities of Scotland which can be found within settlements. They also have a minimum rounded population of 500 people or more. The locality data sets are updated every 2 years.
