Introduction

This annual publication presents statistics on housing supply and public sector housing in Scotland up to 31 st March 2016, based on information collected from local authorities, housing associations and the Scottish Government affordable housing supply programme.

Information is provided on new housing supply (across all sectors), public sector stock and house sales, local authority housing management (evictions, housing lists, lettings, vacant stock), local authority housing for older people and people with disabilities, right to buy entitlement, and housing in multiple occupation ( HMO).

These statistics are used for a variety of purposes including for monitoring the National Performance Framework Indicator on increasing the number of new homes in Scotland.
