All local authorities submit a quarterly return summarising homelessness acceptances in their area. The return includes ethnicity information as well as the reason the household lost their previous home, the reason for priority need, and any use of temporary accommodation.
Suppression rules and disclosure control
Any values based on fewer than 5 responses have been suppressed to avoid disclosing personal information.
To minimise suppression, data has been shown for full financial years rather than quarters.
Figures in the charts and tables are rounded to the nearest whole number. Figures in the downloads are rounded to 1 decimal point.
