This dataset provides 2011 estimates that classify usual residents in households in England and Wales by accommodation type. The estimates are as at census day, 27 March 2011.

This information identifies the type and amount of housing in each area, along with changes in the state of the housing stock. This provides a firm basis for assessing current and future demand and helps with calculating whether enough appropriate forms of housing are available, or if help (in the form of housing grants) may be needed.

Similar estimates from the 2001 Census were provided in table UV42

Statistical Disclosure Control
In order to protect against disclosure of personal information from the 2011 Census, there has been swapping of records in the Census database between different geographic areas, and so some counts will be affected. In the main, the greatest effects will be at the lowest geographies, since the record swapping is targeted towards those households with unusual characteristics in small areas.

More details on the ONS Census disclosure control strategy may be found on the Statistical Disclosure Control page on the ONS web site.
