Housing Statistics for Scotland 2017: Key Trends Summary
This publication presents annual statistics up to 31 st March 2017 on total new housing supply in Scotland across all sectors, along with information on various elements of local authority housing such as stock, lettings, house sales, evictions, housing lists, and housing for older people and people with disabilities.
The statistics are based on information collected from local authorities and the Scottish Government affordable housing supply database, and are used for a variety of purposes, including for monitoring the National Performance Framework Indicator on increasing the number of new homes in Scotland.
