Previous years’ estimates of the total number of dwellings are based on data from the population censuses updated annually to take account of new house building and demolitions. The breakdown of dwelling stock estimates by tenure is estimated from 2011 Census information and information from the Annual Population Survey, local authority returns and registered social landlord (RSL) returns.
- The total number of dwellings in Wales continues to grow steadily. At 31 March 2015 there were an estimated 1.4 million dwellings which represents an increase of 10.3 per cent since 2000-01.
- The estimated number of private sector dwellings has increased steadily over the last ten years, mainly due to an increase in the number of privately rented dwellings which accounted for 15 per cent of all dwellings at 31 March 2015.
- The percentage of dwellings which are owner occupied has fallen over recent years though they continue to represent the majority of all dwellings in Wales, accounting for 69 per cent at 31 March 2015.
- At 31 March 2015, social sector dwellings accounted for 16 per cent of all dwellings compared with 19 per cent in 2000-01. However the estimated number of dwellings rented from local authorities has decreased by more than half since 2000-01 whilst the estimated number rented from Registered Social Landlords (RSLs) has more than doubled over the same period.
(1) Includes intermediate tenures and other tenures not socially or privately rented.
