Housing Statistics for Scotland - Stock by tenure


Stock by tenure

These figures provide the estimated number of dwellings in Scotland by tenure. They are updated each year using information from Housing Statistics Annual Returns, and Scottish Household Survey data.


The figures presented here are based on March 2015 because this is the latest available Scottish Household Survey dataset. Updated stock by tenure figures for 2016 were published on 2nd October 2017 to incorporate the Scottish Household Survey 2016 results.
