For the U.K., there are up to four tenure categories for dwelling stock, house building and household figures. These are:
Estimates of the total dwelling stock, stock changes and the tenure distribution for each country are made by Communities and Local Government, the Scottish Executive and the National Assembly for Wales. These are primarily based on census output data for the number of dwellings (or households converted to dwellings) from the Censuses of Population for Great Britain.
The dwelling stock statistical release details the key changes since the previous release, a year before. The new data published in the release are also incorporated into detailed data tables (known as ‘live tables’) which provide further breakdowns, including dwelling stock statistics for local authority districts.
Please, note that the dataset frequency has been altered over the time. Before 1981 the frequency was very variable. Since 1981 to 1990 the frequency was set to Annual (December). Starting 1991 onwards the frequency is Annual (March).
The live tables also incorporate revisions if improved information is provided at a later date and will always contain the latest data, whereas previous statistical releases are not revised in the light of new data, but left as they were at publication.
