The rough sleeping counts or estimates take place between 1 October and 30 November.
Local authorities have to submit their data using the MHCLG DELTA online system by 14 December.
4 local authorities to date have submitted their data using this system. Once figures are submitted they are then certified by Homeless Link, which is funded by MHCLG to provide independent verification, validation and guidance to local authorities for the annual rough sleeping count and estimate process.
We cannot provide any more detailed information about who has submitted their rough sleeping count or estimates during the process, as this could undermine the trust, quality and value of the official statistics.
As in previous years, the official rough sleeping statistics will be published in January 2019.
