1921 Scottish census to be released

Following news that the 1911 Scottish census is to be released on April 5th comes the exciting news that the 1921 Scottish census is to be released also.

The census returns, recorded in the country in the aftermath of the First World War, will show a much depleted male population. The award for its digitisation has not yet been announced as the process is still to be the subject to a tender process, as with the 1911 returns.

The 1921 census is expected to go online in 2021... :)

You got me excited there, I thought it was going to be released 10 years early!
