Chronology:
The data are for the single year 2001.

Sources:

  1. This table combines data from four different tables in the 2001 census outputs, all of which were downloaded from the CASWEB system on 25th February 2017, but the data available for Scotland differ from England and Wales. In each case, all available data from CASWEB from these particular tables are held here, although many other tables on housing topics are available. The geographies used vary:
    • England: CAS Wards.
    • Wales: CAS Electoral Division.
    • Scotland: ST (Standard Table) Postcode Sector.
  2. Data on housing amenities, and other summary data, come from Table KS019: "Rooms, amenities, central heating and lowest floor level: All households." This is mainly a count of households. This includes two additional columns for Scotland, so the CASWEB cell identifiers listed below apply only to the data for England and Wales.
  3. Data on housing tenure are taken from Table KS018 in the 2001 Key Statistics, "Tenure: All households", which is again a count of households. The Scottish version of this table differs because it breaks down private rented accommodation into Furnished and Unfurnished.
  4. For England and Wales, two tables in the Census Area Statistics Univariate Tables provide the most detailed data on numbers of persons per room, Table UV058, "Persons Per Room: All Households" which is a count of households, and Table UV083: "Persons Per Room: All Household Residents", which is a count of persons. The latter table is the more relevant to long-run comparisons, but is not available for Scotland.


Notes:

  1. The data set held here includes all columns in the CASWEB tables.
  2. Tables KS019, KS018 and UV058 all include an overall count of total numbers of households, and checking showed each to sometimes slightly differ from both of the others, so all three are held here.


Checking:

  1. Data are as downloaded; no further checking.
