The report looks at the differences between the number of dwellings recorded during the 2011 Census and the rolled forward annual estimates of dwellings based on the 2001 Census.
The 2011 Census recorded a higher number of dwellings than the dwelling stock estimates rolled forward from the 2001 Census for 31 March 2011 by more than 34,000 dwellings. In order to ensure consistency with the 2011 Census figures the dwelling stock estimates for Wales and the individual local authorities from 2001-02 to 2010-11 were rebased to take into account the 2011 Census figures
The report describes the methodology used for calculating the dwelling stock estimates on an annual basis, the difference between the estimate of dwellings for 31 March 2011 and the 2011 Census count at a Wales and local authority level and the factors which may have impacted on the difference between the two sets of data.
