The statistical release provides information on lettings of social housing in England provided by local authorities and private registered providers.
Information about the tenancy, the tenants and the property are collected each time there is a new letting. Lettings of general needs and supported social housing are collected, and, from 2012 to 2013, both local authorities and private registered providers also report their affordable rent lettings (private registered providers began reporting this in 2011 to 2012).
All data are submitted through the online COntinuous REcording (CORE) system.
Alongside this release we have published a quality report that summarises the key issues relating to the quality of the statistics.
