2011 statistics on types of Central Heating for all Local Authorities in Great Britain
Approx. number of rows:
380
Table type:
Raw Data
Documentation Author:
Humphrey Southall
Chronology:
The data cover the period 1881 to 1911.

Sources:

  1. The data for England and Wales form the entire contents of Table QS415EW. "Central Heating", from the 2011 Quick Statistics, and were downloaded from the Neighbourhood Statistics web site on 25th July 2016.
  2. The data for Scotland are from Table QS415SC, "Central heating", from the 2011 Quick Statistics, and were downloaded from http://www.scotlandscensus.gov.uk on 25th July 2016. NB the data are essentially idential to those for England and Wales.


Notes:

  1. The only data gathered by the 2011 Census on housing "amenities" were on Central Heating, although they are elsewhere cross-tabulated with other housing variables such as tenure type.
  2. These data were added to our system in July 2016 to supplement the housing condition data for 2011 previously loaded as (a) they provide details of types of central heating for England and Wales, and (b) the data for Scotland are exactly comparable.


Checking:

  1. The data are as downloaded.
  2. The data have been checked to ensure that the sum of no_central_heat + any_heat = tot_hhold.
