Most people living in Scotland describe their national identity as being "Scottish only", according to the latest census figures.

Data released from the 2011 census showed 62% described themselves as "Scottish only", while 18% said they were "Scottish and British".

The results also showed Scotland was becoming more ethnically diverse.

In 2011, 4% of Scotland's population was from ethnic minority groups, up from 2% in 2001.

The figures indicated that most Scots from ethnic minorities are Asian, making up 3% of the Scottish population.

People from ethnic minorities make up 12% of the population in Glasgow, 8% of the population in Edinburgh and Aberdeen, and 6% of the population in Dundee.

The 2011 census was the first to include a question on national identity.
