About the Scottish Longitudinal Study

The Scottish Longitudinal Study is a large set of information drawn from the Scottish Census, and other places such as registrations of births, deaths and marriages and education information collected by the Scottish Government. All information that might identify individual people is removed before it reaches the SLS. So for example, all names and addresses have been permanently removed.

The SLS is created and supported by a team at the SLS Development Support Unit (SLS-DSU) in Ladywell House, Edinburgh.

In these pages you can find out about the SLS and how it is used:
