1. Note that Chart 3 shows data in calendar years rather than financial years

2. Note the change in methodology from March 2001. For the years following 2001, Scottish Household Survey data is combined with dwelling counts of occupied and vacant property (National Records of Scotland data) to split privately owned stock into owner occupied, private rented and vacant. Social rented stock counts provided by local authorities and the Scottish Housing Regulator. Estimates for the owner occupier and rented privately categories for the year 2020 are not directly comparable to previous years, due to the change in the methodology of the Scottish Household Survey in 2020 due to the pandemic period

3. Usually 80% of the cost of prescribed adaptation work or 100% where the applicant receives certain benefits
