FOI release

Private Rental Market percentiles for monthly rents in England

A response to an external request for 5th, 10th, 15th and 20th percentiles for the latest published monthly rents by local authority.



A link to the requested statistics can be found above. Data is for monthly rents recorded between 1 October 2014 and 30 September 2015.

For the new reporting year, 1 April 2016, a new standard rounding convention, consistent with other VOA statistical releases, has been applied to these counts in order to minimise the risk of disclosure. Counts are rounded to the nearest 10 with counts of zero being reported as “0” and counts fewer than five reported as negligible and denoted by “-“. Totals may not sum due to rounding.

These counts are an extension of the VOA’s published Private Rental Market statistics, however the tables are considered to be outside the scope of Official Statistics since they have not been subject to the same quality assurance procedures.
