Statistics at VOA

The Valuation Office Agency (VOA) publish official statistics on non-domestic rating and Council Tax.

From October 2019, Office for National Statistics (ONS) are responsible for publishing official statistics on the private rental market. ONS aim to develop these statistics to allow users to have a better understanding of the private rental market.

Statistics published by the VOA prior to October 2019 can be accessed on the Private rental market statistics page.

We’ve grouped our official statistics into 2 topics:

Recent and upcoming publications

The release calendar shows the VOA’s planned publication dates for the coming year. We encourage users to check this schedule regularly for revisions. Publication of our statistics happens at 9:30am on the stated day of release.
