Source of hard facts on housing in England

English Housing Survey 20110/11 Headline Report

DCLG (Housing Ministry) release of the headline report of the English Housing Survey covering the period 2010/11. Available for download. The report included the following highlights: - 63% of households in the social rented sector were in receipt of Housing Benefit, compared with 25% in the private rented sector. - The long term upward trend in the proportion of households experiencing overcrowding in both rented sectors appeared to continue (7% for social renters and 6% for private renters in 2010-11), but there was no appreciable change in the proportion of owner occupiers living in overcrowded conditions.
