Registrar unveils 1911 Census data
A snapshot of Scotland just before the First World War has been revealed with the release of the records of the 1911 census.
On the night of April 2 a century ago the population of Scotland was 4,759,445 - a 6% rise since the last census a decade before.
The quick growth was spurred partly by better health and the resulting improvements in child mortality rates, and partly by immigration.
However it was the last survey before the First World War, during which many tens of thousands of young people recorded in 1911 would have been killed.
The archives have been opened because the 100-year closure period which follows each census has expired and they are now available online.
The 1911 census shows Fife's population increased by 22% on the previous decade but in Orkney it had shrunk by 10%.
This reflected Scotland's industrialisation and people's drift from rural areas to towns and cities, according to Register General for Scotland Duncan Macniven.
Lanarkshire, Fife, Dumbarton and Renfrew had the greatest population increases, while Inverness, Orkney, Argyll and Forfar had the greatest drops.
The top five occupations for men in 1911 were in iron and other metal manufacture, followed by agriculture, coal mining, building and commerce such as being a clerk. Most women were in domestic service at the time, with the next highest proportions in textile factories, making and selling clothes and agriculture.
Deaths in the First World War meant that the number of males remained at around 2.3 million between the 1911 and 1921 censuses. Between the 1901 and 1911 censuses the male population increased by 11.9%.
