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

The classification used corresponds to the tick box response options on the census questionnaire for household tenure (whether owned or rented) and the type of landlord for rented accommodation, for example council or housing association.

This information helps central and local government assess changes in housing demand and allocate resources to revise and develop housing plans and policies. It also allows better understanding of the make-up of social and privately rented accommodation.

Similar estimates from the 2001 Census were provided in table UV43

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.
