Scottish House Condition Survey

Collection of documents relating to the Scottish House Condition Survey.


This is the largest single housing research project in Scotland, and the only national survey to look at the physical condition of Scotland's homes as well as the experiences of householders.


The survey fieldwork runs from January to December each year, with the survey now an integrated component of the Scottish Household Survey.
