As part of our commitment to increasing transparency, DCLG is publishing this list of information assets held by the department as part of its Information Asset Register, with links to where they can be found, if currently publicly available. The assets include, but are not limited to, databases, specific datasets and collections of official records.

Where an entry on the register is not publicly available, the final column of the table indicates the rationale for not publishing it. This column applies to the release of the entire, raw data or information. Summaries, partial data or Official Statistics based on the data may be published.

The notes relating to the rationale for non-release may be based on existing regulatory regimes and codes of practice, including the Freedom of Information Act, the Environment Information Regulations and the Code of Practice for Official Statistics. It is also noted where the information is no longer collected and would be out of date.

This is not a definitive listing of all DCLG data, but adds to over 800 DCLG datasets already in the public domain which can be accessed at

If you have any queries regarding the entries on this register, please contact the department’s Records Officer (0303 444 2516).
