nCube definition

From 1961 the census has gathered data on whether households owned or rented their homes, and if rented who from. Individual censuses provided different details, but here we present a simple classification which is possible for all dates. Note that housing rented from Housing Associations has to be included with private rentals, separately from "council housing".
