CIPFA Housing Rents and Service Charges Statistics
All figures in this commentary and in the summary tables which follow are based on grossed-up figures, that is figures which have been adjusted to compensate for non-responding authorities. This is intended to give a consistent base to the statistics. Users of these statistics are reminded that the figures, although based on real data, are necessarily estimates.
Excluding Scotland, at April 1999 the estimated net unrebated rent of almost 3.4 million council dwellings was £42.82, an increase of £1.49 (3.5%) over April 1998.
Tables 1 and 2 analyse the average rent increases between regions and types of authority.
The tables highlight the considerable variation in rent levels between regions and types of authority. London, unsurprisingly, has the highest average rent by a considerable margin.
Tables 3 and 4 include 17 and 183 returns respectively for authorities who possess no such type of dwellings.
