General description
The information presented here shows sales of local authority dwellings. The data is used to help monitor trends in both the overall level of Welsh housing stock and the changes in its tenure distribution over time. Data is also used by the Welsh Government and local authorities to assess levels of housing supply across Wales and as an indication as to whether housing need is being met.

Data collection and calculation
The information presented here is collected via annual returns from Welsh social landlords (local authorities and registered social landlords) on the sales recorded during the financial year.

Frequency of publication
Annual

Data reference periods
