General description
The Information presented here is taken from the the bi-annual Gypsy and Traveller Caravan Count conducted by local authorities in Wales. It sets out the number of Gypsy and Traveller caravans on authorised and unauthorised sites in Wales.

Data collection and calculation
Since January 2011, the counts have been conducted by the data collection team within the Welsh Government’s Statistical Directorate. Previous data collections had been conducted by the Department for Communities and Local Government

Frequency of publication
Twice yearly

Data reference periods
The count is carried out in January and July every year

Users, uses and context
The data presented here forms part of the evidence base when assessing bids from local authorities for the Gypsy and Traveller New Sites Grant and Gypsy and Traveller Refurbishment Grant.

Rounding applied
None

Statistical quality
The response and quality of the count can be affected by the following factors:
local authorities not completing their returns;
inadequate counting practices;
geography – particularly in large rural areas which require correspondingly large resources to map all sites;
Gypsy and Traveller mistrust; and
the counts are voluntary, with no rewards to local authorities completing their returns or penalties for those that fail to do so.
