(1) how many and what proportion of housing stock units were (a) owner-occupied, (b) privately rented and (c) socially rented in (i) England, (ii) each English region and (iii) each London local authority in (A) 1980, (B) 1990, (C) 2000 and (D) 2007;
(2) if she will rank each English local authority by the percentage change in the number of properties in the social rented sector in its area since 1980.
The number of households by housing tenure are available from the 1981, 1991 and 2001 censuses. Estimates for 2007 are derived from the labour force survey, but only for England and the regions. Information on housing stock for 2007 is also available from the Housing Strategy Statistical Appendix (HSSA), collected from local authorities. This information does not separately identify privately rented and owner occupied dwellings—however it does provide estimates for the London boroughs.
Data on the change in social housing stock between 1980 and 2007 are from the Housing Investment Programme (1980) and the HSSA (2007). Local authorities that did not provide data or are in areas where there was local government reorganisation over this period have been excluded.
