The Ministry for Housing Communities and Local Government carries out the English Housing Survey each year. The survey collects information on overcrowding at the national and regional level. Data on overcrowding at a regional level can be found here : https://commonslibrary.parliament.uk/research-briefings/sn01013/ . The English Housing Survey is a sample survey of just over 13,000 respondents and 6,200 dwellings per year. The survey is not designed to provide data at the neighbourhood or local authority level since it does not survey enough people in each local authority to make the results statistically robust at that level.
