General description
The Welsh Government conducts the council tax dwellings survey (CT1 form). Data are available on the number of dwellings eligible for the council tax in each local authority for the next financial year, analysed by council tax band, including the numbers of properties eligible for council tax discounts and exemptions.

Data cover Wales for all years since 1996-97. Data for earlier years is available for the former districts of Wales, which were re-organised on 1 April 1996.

The survey has been conducted every October to December since 1993-94. Results are available in early January, approximately three months before the beginning of the financial year.
