The continuous recording of lettings and sales in social housing in England (referred to as CORE) is a national information source that records information on the characteristics of both private registered providers and local authority new social housing tenants and the homes they rent.
This collection provides all of the statistical information that the Ministry of Housing, Communities and Local Government produces on social housing lettings and includes:
trends in social housing lettings over time
characteristics of tenants with new social housing lettings
types of tenancy agreements
Summary information about characteristics of the tenants and the properties are available in the annual statistical releases below.
Further information about the uses of CORE data and detailed analyses are available from the CORE website.
As well as CORE, information about social housing is available from other sources. Details about some of these different data sources which are used to generate the latest available data tables (live tables) can be found in Rents, lettings and tenancy data.
We are interested in understanding more about how our housing statistics and data are used and the decisions they inform. This is important for us so we can provide a high quality service which meets users’ needs.
Up to date live tables from the Local Authority Housing Statistics (LAHS) and previous live tables from CORE statistics that have now been discontinued and replaced with the annual statistics releases are available here:
