National statistics on social housing lettings in England during 2015 to 2016 provided by local authorities and private registered providers.
The statistical release provides information on lettings of social housing in England provided by local authorities and private registered providers and reflects data on social housing lettings given by providers for the financial year ending 31 March 2016.
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. Since October 2015 the CORE data collection system has been managed by DCLG.
Alongside this release we have published a quality report that summarises the key issues relating to the quality of the statistics.
