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 2017 because this is the latest available Scottish Household Survey dataset. 

The excel file includes 2 tables:

  • Estimated stock of dwellings by tenure - calendar year time series from 1993 to 2000 and financial year time series from 2001-02 to 2016-17, at Scotland level. Please note the change in methodology from 2001, which is fully explained in the notes in the downloadable excel file.
  • Estimated stock of dwellings by tenure and local authority, most recent year only.
