It also provides data on the number of households in temporary accommodation, along with the number of households in unsuitable temporary accommodation as defined in the Homeless Persons (Unsuitable Accommodation) (Scotland) Order 2014.
The bulletin is based on data collected from local authorities through the HL1 case-level homelessness applications data collection along with the HL2 aggregate temporary accommodation summary return and the HL3 case-level temporary accommodation return.
