Dwellings, stock condition and households

This chapter outlines some of the key developments shown by the latest data on dwellings, stock condition and households. In particular it comments on the difficulties with the tenure data from the 2001 Census, and some of the key findings from the English and Northern Ireland 2001 house condition surveys. The chapter includes three tables with regional data from the 2001 EHCS.

Note: The majority of the tables in The Review contain UK-based figures, but sometimes figures for Great Britain are used depending upon the sources. All other tables will refer to the country(ies) concerned. Where English regional figures are shown, this is usually indicated in the title. Tables showing breakdowns between England, Wales, Scotland and/or Northern Ireland are indicated with a single *, and those showing international comparisons with two **.

Data in tables and figures is frequently rounded and/or updated and therefore will not always add up exactly.
