The new Scottish Parliament will comprise 44 females, an increase of one on the previous parliament.
34.1% of today's newly-elected MSPs are women, with 65.9% being male. That translates into 85 males and 44 females making up the new parliament.
The number of women in the parliament has increased by one from the 43 elected in the 2007 Scottish Parliament elections.
However, the percentage of women is down by 5.4% since 2003, when 39.5% of the parliament were female.
That year, Scotland was fourth in world league tables for women’s representation in government, behind only Wales, Rwanda and Sweden. The 2007 election saw it slip to 13th, and this year’s results only represent a 0.8% rise on those figures.
