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


The type of building or structure used or available by an individual or household.

This could be:

* the whole house or bungalow
* a flat, maisonette or apartment
* a temporary or mobile structure, such as a caravan

More information about accommodation types

Whole house or bungalow:
This property type is not divided into flats or other living accommodation. There are three types of whole houses or bungalows.

None of the living accommodation is attached to another property but can be attached to a garage.

The living accommodation is joined to another house or bungalow by a common wall that they share.

A mid-terraced house is located between two other houses and shares two common walls. An end-of-terrace house is part of a terraced development but only shares one common wall.

Flats (Apartments) and maisonettes:
An apartment is another word for a flat. A maisonette is a 2-storey flat.

Quality Statement

We have made changes to housing definitions since the 2011 Census. Take care if you compare Census 2021 results for this topic with those from the 2011 Census.
