Housing Statistics for Scotland 2020 and 2021: Key Trends Summary
This is an annual compendium publication which brings together newly collected figures from local authorities on council housing stock and housing management with previously published figures on new housebuilding and affordable housing supply. It also includes figures from other sources, such as housing association stock levels from the Scottish Housing Regulator, with the aim of producing a comprehensive summary of housing statistics in Scotland.
This publication presents annual statistics up to 31st March 2021 on total new housing supply in Scotland across all sectors, along with information on various elements of local authority housing such as stock, lettings, evictions and housing lists, as well as latest stock by tenure estimates to 31st March 2020.
This release incorporates figures covering the latest two years of annual figures since the previous 2019 key trends publication, with the 2020 and 2021 publications having been delayed due to the impacts of COVID-19 on data provision and staff resourcing. Note that the figures presented for the year 2020-21 will reflect impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic period, where these have impacted on levels of housing supply and various aspects of local authority housing across this period.
More detailed background Excel tables are available on the Housing Statistics webpages, along with information on data quality and sources used. A separate summary of the latest quarterly data on new housebuilding and affordable housing is available in the Housing Statistics for Scotland Quarterly Update March 2022.
