Number of Local Authority dwellings.
Figures in this table are unaudited by local authorities. Data before 2003/04 are more prone to errors as they were validated less rigorously. Where a local authority has become a Large Scale Voluntary Transfer (LSVT) authority it's stock would reduce to zero or a small number.
The districts, unitary authorities and counties listed above are based on 1 April 1998 boundaries. Values related to any old local authorities which had gone through a boundary change have been redistributed to the relevant new local authority by proportioning based on the number of households falling within the new districts at the time.
Data for each year are from the year in which they were reported. For example, 2007/08 data is from HSSA 2007/08 returns.
