All local authorities assessed rough sleeping on a single night between 1 October and 30 November 2018.

February 2019 revision

A typographic error on page 12 of the release on the Rough Sleeping Initiative has been corrected in this revised version. The percentage reduction in rough sleeping in the 83 Rough Sleeping Initiative areas between 2017 and 2018 should have been 19% rather than the 23% originally reported. The underlying figures remain unchanged, as does the national 2% reduction.
