Other sources of housing and homelessness data

Here are some other sources of data around housing from government and non-government sources. These enable you to view Southwark (and often ward-level) data and compare it with that for other areas.

  • The 2011 Census included information about people's living arrangements and household size, type of dwelling and tenure, number of rooms/bedrooms per person and central heating. Data can be compared across different areas and population groups and based on people's answers to other questions. For help on accessing Census and other ONS data click here.
  • The GLA provides clear London-level summaries, often with borough-level data, of Census statistics including housing data (including tenure and overcrowding).
  • As well as overall deprivation, the indices of deprivation give scores for barriers to housing and services and living environment at Lower Super Output Area level and by local authority. The last figures are from 2010 but new ones will be released in summer 2015.
  • London’s Poverty Profile includes a variety of indicators, including many relevant to housing and homelessness (affordable housing, overcrowding, repossessions, temporary accommodation, homelessness).
  • London Mapper presents statistics in map format or as figures. The Housing maps include data on dwellings, dwelling additions, people per dwelling, homeless, house prices, household size, housing sales/value and rents.
  • London-level and borough-level data from the GLA: summaries (click the 'Housing' button) and in depth
  • Government statistics and reports can be searched by keyword, department (eg DCLG, Homes and Communities Agency) or topic (eg housing). Data includes affordable housing supply, social housing sales, homelessness, house prices and building, renting, benefits claimants, and much more.+
  • The Housing and Planning Bill 2016. This document provides a short clause by clause explanation of the elements of the Housing and Planning Bill up to the end of April. Several amendments and counter amendments are being exchanged between the House of Commons and the House of Lords and the Bill is therefore subject to change.
