Non standard deviation (From the BBC with a 5% margin of error)

People in Scotland are less likely to want to reduce immigration than those in England and Wales, a new study says.
The Oxford University Migration Observatory said it was the first major survey to ask people in Scotland about immigration to Scotland.
Scott Blinder, from the observatory, said Scottish attitudes to migration were different from the rest of Britain but "not massively" so.
He said the majority of Scots would still like to see immigration reduced.
The survey, conducted by polling organisation YouGov, said 58% of people in Scotland wanted to see immigration reduced a little or a lot.
The figure for England and Wales was 75%.
The pollsters were surprised to find that the respondent group used in Scotland varied in one respect qualitatively from comparator groups used in English and Wales.
 To the question, "Are you personally biased against immigration to Scotland?", 100% of the Scottish sample responded:"Just no Tims."
It is thought that YouGov pollsters, in selecting in survey site, didn't know that Larkhall is a very special place...
