This dataset provides Census 2021 estimates that classify households in England and Wales by tenure. The estimates are as at Census Day, 21 March 2021.


Whether a household owns or rents the accommodation that it occupies.

Owner-occupied accommodation can be:

* owned outright, which is where the household owns all of the accommodation
* with a mortgage or loan
* part-owned on a shared ownership scheme

Rented accommodation can be:

* private rented (for example, rented through a private landlord or letting agent
* social rented through a local council or housing association

This information is not available for household spaces with no usual residents.

Quality Statement

There is evidence of people incorrectly identifying their type of landlord as ”Council or local authority” or “Housing association”. You should add these two categories together when analysing data that uses this variable.
