Perth and Kinross Council have advised us that there was an error in the HL2 return they submitted to us for the quarter ending 31st March 2013. The Council's accommodation database picked up a large number of private sector tenancies created through their Rent Bond Guarantee Scheme and pulled them into the temporary accommodation report in the ‘Other’ category. The publication has been revised to take account of the new data submitted.  These revisions affect Tables 11 to 14, Charts 27 and 27c, and some of the text in the Main Points and Temporay Accommodation sections.

Revised at 17:00 16 July 2013.

Due to accidental double entry of Fife Council's HL2 data, a number of tables, charts and related text in the annual publication have been revised. We would like to apologise to users of the statistics, and in particular, Fife Council for any inconvenience caused.
