2022 Scottish Census

What are the Scots Language questions?

As part of Scotland's Census 2022 everyone living in Scotland will be asked if they can understand Scots, speak Scots, read Scots and write Scots. We will also be asked what our main language is.

Listening to people on this site speaking Scots will help you decide whether you can understand Scots, if you are a Scots speaker, and whether this is your main language. You will also find examples of written Scots which can help you decide if you can read Scots and whether you can write Scots yourself.
