Scottish Government (2010) Demographic Change in Scotland This report is driven by the Scottish Government’s requirement for accurate information on Scotland’s population and potential demographic changes (in terms of profile and population growth). This information is needed in order to prepare policy responses to future demographic changes. Within this comprehensive report migration is identified as a key area which has implications for Scotland’s population growth and economic growth targets along with service delivery planning and objectives. The report recognises that recent migration has had a significant impact on population growth in Scotland. It is important to recognise that migration provides the principle opportunity for short-term population growth in Scotland and that immigration has reversed Scotland’s historic tendency towards net out-migration. This Scottish Government report gathers vital evidence to aid better understanding of the complexity of the demographic change currently underway in Scotland. The report gives due consideration to issues of service impact and new policy formation, it also provides a good platform for further investigation of the issues raised.
