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 (now Ministry of Housing, 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

Revisions information

Figures for January 2016 were revised on 22 April 2020 following the identification of a data-error.

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;
- the counts are voluntary, with no rewards to Local Authorities completing their returns or penalties for those that fail to do so.
