General description
The information presented here covers the number of lettings within housing stock held by Local Authorities and Registered Social Landlords. The information is collected via annual returns from Welsh social landlords in order to monitor trends over time in the number and type of lettings made. Lettings covers all lettings during the financial year and includes new lets, re-lets, transfers and exchanges.


2) Data on lettings for Gwalia Housing Group was unavailable for 2010-11 and 2011-12. For 2010-11, 2009-10 data has been used. For 2011-12, total lettings was received separately and a breakdown by location and letting type derived by applying the proportions from 2009-10;

3) A revision of the data from the Vale of Glamorgan was identified to the previous year's lettings data for 2008-09 however the revised data could not be provided before the publication date.

4) For 2008-09 and 2009-10, Abbeyfield societies, Almshouse Charities and Co-ownership societies were not required to complete a lettings return.


Data collection and calculation
The information presented here is collected via annual returns from Local Authorities and Registered Social Landlords for each financial year.

During the 2009-10, 2010-11 and 2011-12 data collection and validation, some landlords were unable to either submit data or to resolve validation errors. Where this is the case, the best available estimate of the missing or incorrect data has been used. Whilst this should have only a small effect on data at a Wales level, care may be needed when using data for specific areas and providers. The list below details the issues:

1) Data on lettings for Blaenau Gwent was unavailable for 2009-10, so 2008-09 data has been used for 2009-10;
