The statistics on Dwellings and housing conditions have adopted the Classification of Buildings 2018

In connection with the publication of data for 2020, the statistics on Dwellings and housing conditions have adopted the Classification of Buildings 2018, and a new classification for type of building is introduced similarly:

  • One-dwelling and two-dwelling houses (Classes 0110 One-dwelling houses and 0111 Two-dwelling houses)
  • Terraced houses (Class 0112 Terraced houses)
  • Blocks of flats (Classes 0120 Low-rise blocks of flats and 0121 Residential blocks of flats)
  • Other buildings (Dwellings in other classes of buildings)

The new classification for type of building is applied to the database tables on Dwellings and housing conditions from statistical year 2005 onwards.

Other detached and semi-detached houses (Class 013 in the old classification of buildings) are classified as One-dwelling and two-dwelling houses in database table 116a prior to statistical year 2005. From statistical year 2005 onwards, they are classified as Terraced houses or Low-rise blocks of flats depending on their characteristics information.

In the data for 2020, the compilation of statistics on tenure status was revised especially as concerns dwellings owned by rental housing companies.
