Social Tenants in Scotland
Social Tenants in Scotland is a new Official Statistics publication that presents an overview of social tenants and social rented housing in Scotland for the year, covering topic areas such as stock, household characteristics, housing flows, and rents and income levels. It includes trend data for earlier years and comparisons with other housing tenures and with other parts of the UK.
It is based on an analysis of a range of existing Official Statistics data sources such as the Scottish Household Survey, the Family Resources Survey, and Scottish Government Housing Statistics, along with figures, not Official Statistics, from the Scottish Housing Regulator Social Housing Charter Indicator Data.
The main users of this publication are likely to include those involved in housing policy and practice, researchers, tenants, social landlords, and other individuals with an interest in social tenants and social rented housing. The publication also helps to fill the gap in information available about social housing tenants following the cessation of the Scottish Government SCORE data collection and publication on housing association new lets, which ran up to and including the year 2014/15.
Further information and results are contained in the publication documents which are available through the links below:
