DCLG collects information on allocations of social housing through the COntinuous REcording of social housing lettings and sales (CORE). Table 3g of the published summary tables, available at the link below, provides the percentage of all local authority and private registered provider lettings where the tenant had been statutorily homeless prior to the letting. This is broken down for general needs, social and affordable rented and supported housing lettings.
