Membership Census

Scottish Youth Parliament Members Census 2015-2017

At the beginning of a new Scottish Youth Parliament term, a membership census is undertaken in order to ascertain whether the elected Members of the Scottish Youth Parliament are representative of wider Scottish society in the corresponding age categories, across a number of key indicators.

Our most recent census for the 2017-19 membership was undertaken at the June National Sitting in West Dunbartonshire on Sunday 25th June, 2017, the sixth census undertaken in the organisation’s lifetime.

The data collected was then compared with data for the corresponding age category Scotland wide, and where there is insufficient data, the wider population.
