Note 1:- All homeless and priority homeless assessment decisions include households assessed as threatened with homelessness.

Note 2:- In November 2012 the Scottish Parliament approved the Homelessness (Abolition of Priority Need Test) (Scotland) Order 2012. This meets the homelessness commitment and ensures that from 31st December 2012 onwards, local authorities no longer apply the priority need test to homeless households. For illustration, in Jan-Mar 2013 we have included 100% to show that the target was met.
