Description of data collected about the Scottish deer sector



These data are being gathered by questionnaire survey online, sent to deer keepers around Scotland. We are focusing on "managed" deer - meaning humans have influence over their range for at least part of the year. We are asking questions about recording of births, deaths, sales and purchases; we also ask how records are made and kept, when this happens. The dataset contains responses to these questions and may also contain personal email addresses; we have asked for these to be given, optionally, if respondents want to get involved in further discussion of this topic later in the project. We also request some location information - first half of postcode where deer premises is registered.
