Working Paper No. 85
This analysis uses data from the General Household Survey, the Family Resources Survey and the English House Condition Survey to make comparisons of the levels of rent paid by private sector tenants among different groups of households. In particular, it compares the levels of rent between those receiving and not receiving Housing Benefit before the introduction of the LHA. The results of this paper are summarised in Chapter 2 of DWP Research Report No. 698, Low income working households in the private rented sector.
