Publication of 2015/16 CORE data


We are pleased to inform you that the data for the 2015/16 data collection is now available to view through the reporting tools and to download via the system. It is available at national and local authority level via graphical tools and via PDF reports. If you are a data provider, you can also access data for your own organisation.

The national level data is in line with the data published in our National Statistics release Social housing lettings in England: April 2015 to March 2016, published on 10th November 2016, although none of the data in the CORE system is weighted or imputed.

At the local authority level there are certain restrictions on the data shown to prevent the risk of disclosing sensitive information. In the supported housing datasets, there are also a number of cases where the scheme page did not have the right local authority information so it will not be shown.

To access the data please go to the ‘Analyse CORE data’ page of the website, select the type of analysis you wish to do and select the dataset called 2015/16 Final Data. You can view the data in counts or as percentages. The year-on-year comparison is currently unavailable.

Please do contact the helpdesk if you encounter any problems in accessing the data.
