Details

The summary report summarises the regulator’s analysis of unit costs in the social housing sector. This analysis aims to help providers, boards and stakeholders better understand providers’ costs – at sector and provider level – and how they relate to a range of cost drivers.

The technical report sets out the detail of regression analysis undertaken by HCA Regulation on unit costs of private registered providers of social housing. This report is intended for a technical audience and presents detail of data definitions and the statistical process.

The review of value for money self-assessments sets out key issues and themes that the regulator has identified from its reviews of providers’ Value for Money (VfM) self-assessments. It provides commentary both on the most recent assessments that providers have published in 2015, and on how the sector’s response to the standard has evolved over recent years.
