EnglandAre further breakdowns of the data available?
Yes, can be split by housing authority and by type of accommodation, household type and ethnicity.What does a change in this indicator show?
An increase shows that the number of households requiring temporary accommodation risen, although it also shows that local authorities have taken increased action to help more families find temporary accommodation. Conversely, a decrease shows that the demand for temporary accommodation is falling. The changes in the Localism Act allow local authorities to make better use of Private Rented Sector accommodation in discharging their homelessness duty and should lead to homeless households being moved more quickly into settled accommodation, thereby reducing the need for temporary accommodation.Time Lag
