1921 – Men outnumbered.

On 19th June 1921, Scotland’s 13th Census was held – much later than the original planned date of 24th April due to extensive industrial unrest after the first world war.

The effects of the war are apparent straight away when looking at the population of Scotland at this time. Following the war, the 1921 census showed that women significantly outnumbered men by 1080 to 1000 with 187,213 more Scottish women.
