This table provides information about dwellings, household spaces and the accommodation type of households, for United Kingdom as at census day, 27 March 2011.

The results for dwellings are classified by the number that are shared or unshared, with shared dwellings further categorised by the number of household spaces in each dwelling. Household spaces are classified by the number that are occupied or unoccupied, and by type of accommodation.

'All full-time students and schoolchildren aged 4+ years living away from home during term time' figures for Northern Ireland sourced from table QS106NI.

'Household spaces with no usual residents' - in the equivalent country specific table for Scotland (KS401SC) shows a further breakdown of this category of 'household spaces with no usual residents' into (a) second residence / holiday accommodation and (b) vacant household spaces. This is not shown in the UK version of this table.

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.
