From Insider today:

‘Business activity in Scotland’s private sector rose for the first time since August, according to a new report. The latest Royal Bank of Scotland Purchasing Managers’ Index (PMI) recorded an increase in private-sector output in November. The fastest increase in workforce numbers since April and a small rise in orders for the service sector were said to be key to the growth.’

So despite 10 years of Tory misrule and Brexit instability, SNP rule is associated with underlying robustness. See this evidence from 2019 only:
