The breakdown of dwelling stock estimates by tenure shown in this release is estimated from 2011 Census information and information from the Annual Population Survey, local authority returns and registered social landlord (RSL) returns. This differs from previous releases where the breakdown of dwelling stock estimates by tenure was estimated from 2001 Census information, information from the Labour Force Survey and local authority and registered social landlord returns. The information previously shown for years prior to 2011-12 has been revised accordingly.
- It is estimated that the total number of dwellings in Wales continues to grow steadily, with an estimated 1.4 million dwellings at the 31 March 2012, which represents an increase of 9 per cent since 2000-01.
- The majority of dwellings within Wales continue to be owner occupied(1) (70 per cent of all dwellings); however the percentage of owner occupied dwellings has fallen in recent years.
- It is estimated that the number of private sector dwellings has increased steadily over the last ten years. This is largely due to the increase in the number of privately rented dwellings which were estimated to account for 14 per cent of all dwellings at 31 March 2012.
- In the social sector, whilst it is estimated the number of dwellings rented from local authorities has decreased by more than half since 2000-01, the number rented from Registered Social Landlords (RSLs) has more than doubled over the same period. Overall though, there has been a general fall in proportion of social sector dwellings which were estimated to account for 16 per cent of all dwellings at 31 March 2012.
(1) Includes intermediate tenures and other tenures not socially or privately rented.
