Our response highlights the importance of data as a resource to understanding children’s needs and experiences, and in doing so, ensure their rights are realised. We focus on improvements to equalities evidence which will benefit children in Scotland, with specific recommendations relating to data about disability, ethnicity and religion. Overall, we recommend developing greater consistency across children’s datasets in order that children’s experiences can be more clearly understood.
