General description

These are 2019-based estimates of overall additional housing need in Wales. They are based on estimates of existing unmet need and newly arising need. The estimates cover 20 years at both a national and a regional level and are presented as an annual average over a 5-year period. Estimates of additional housing need by tenure are for the period 2019/20 to 2023/24 only.
The sum of the newly arising need for the four regions may differ from that for Wales due to rounding differences. Also, for some years under the lower variant, for North and Mid Wales the newly arising need is negative. This is set to zero within the region but included within the Wales newly arising need resulting in the Wales figure being lower than the sum of the four regions’ newly arising need.


Data collection and calculation

2018-based household projections have been used to calculate newly arising need. Existing unmet need is calculated from the 2011 census and households in temporary accommodation. Estimates of the need for additional housing units by tenure are based on a set of assumptions (see related article for further information).
