‘Shetland in Statistics’ resource gets digital overhaul

THE FORTY second edition of Shetland in Statistics has been published online and features a raft of information related to population, employment, geography, industry and community life.

The latest edition, compiled by Shetland Islands Council’s development department, covers both 2015 and 2016.

For many years it has been an indispensable resource for anyone looking for data on things like population statistics, employment figures and geographical information.

It is now in colour and features tables and graphs, new sections and an interactive contents page. Infographics have ben added and can be used as a “mini pull-out” to summarise different sections of the booklet.

A free online resource with interactive contents and maps, it has also been designed to still be printable at home.

SIC business development researcher Lea Irvine said: “Shetland in Statistics is a valuable resource used not only within the council but externally by the media, researchers, business students and so on.

“We recognised that some other aspects of Shetland life could be included, so we decided to give it an overhaul. What we have now is an up-to-date, comprehensive resource which is both informative and enjoyable to read.”
