DescriptionNearly 500 non-departmental public bodies in Scotland were surveyed in late 1995, having been identified from publications such as HMSO's 'Public Bodies' and 'Scottish Regions'. One organisation questionnaire was sent initially, then, if the organisation fitted the 'quango' profile, a further organisation questionnaire was sent together with board member questionnaires. A QUANGO is a Quasi-Autonomous Non-Governmental Organisation. The replies were entered into two databases; one for organisations and one for board members. The databases contain details of over 250 organisations and approximately 600 individual members. The criteria for inclusion in the database are that the organisation receives public funds which it also disburses and that it's board members are not elected.
