Information on the number of households accepted as homeless, reasons for homelessness and the number of households in temporary accommodation.
The Housing Act (Wales) 2014 included a number of changes to statutory homelessness legislation. These changes were introduced on 27 April 2015.

A number of factors have impacted on the quality and accuracy of the data collected and published on statutory homeless for 2015-16. Further information on these quality concerns, and an explanation about the temporary National Statistics de-designation of this release and accompanying data are provided in ‘Homelessness in Wales, 2015-16’ (see link below).
