Data in the public datasets are drawn from an interview with occupants and a follow-up inspection of their property by trained building surveyors.
From the resulting extensive dataset we have extracted a number of summary variables based on common requests to the SHCS analysis team. Datasets can be downloaded from the table below.
Three years of data are published together. These datasets may be combined to produce time series or to provide statistics for other consecutive three year periods.
For datasets including the Local Authority identifier, users are required to fill in a short data request form.
