Housing Counts is an online data resource bringing together relevant housing data into one place for members to explore.
The tool allows users to explore and compare key trends in different geographies and operating environments. It uses open source data, from house prices, private rents and income, to housing association stock information, empty properties and fuel poverty.
There are two aspects to Housing Counts:
- Stories: These are a mix of data queries we think will be regularly used by members as part of their research, and data which supports our media, policy and campaigns work.
This part of the tool is accessible to everyone.
- Data: The full range of data with an easy to use interface allowing more detailed queries. Users can select up to 10 geographical areas and areas of interest to compare and download charts and tables for use in reports, presentations or online. The raw data behind these graphs can also be downloaded for further exploration.
This part of the tool is available for members as part of their membership, and commercial and other organisations can gain access through an annual subscription package.
Housing Counts is regularly updated to provide you with the most accurate data available.
The tool is available at www.housing.org.uk/housingcounts. It’s free for our members, all you need to do is log into our website or register your details. Non-members have the opportunity to purchase an annual subscription of the tool. For more information please email Emily MacKenzie or call 020 7067 1073.
