As the demand increases for statistics and data to measure the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic, we have had to change our data gathering and release practices, focussing efforts on priority analysis and statistics.

Dwelling stock estimates

Information on the estimated number of dwellings in Wales analysed by year, tenure type and unitary authority. The estimates relate to the end of each financial year i.e. estimates for 2011-12 relate to 31 March 2012. The breakdown of dwelling stock estimates by tenure is estimated from 2011 Census information and information from the Annual Population Survey, local authority returns and registered social landlord (RSL) returns. Dwelling stock estimates between the 2001 and 2011 censuses have been revised to take account of the 2011 Census count of dwellings. The tenure split between owner-occupied and privately rented dwellings has been calculated for 2000-01 to 2002-03 using data from the Welsh Local Labour Force Survey (WLLFS) and for 2003-04 onwards using data from the Annual Population Survey (APS). Previously the tenure split was calculated using data from the Labour Force Survey and the data has been revised accordingly.
