Housing market, yearly data

Created 2 years ago, updated 3 months ago

These data are part of the House Price Statistics for Small Areas (HPSSAs) release, produced by ONS. HPSSAs report statistics for a range of national and subnational geographies.

These statistics report the count, median price, mean price and lower quartile price of all dwellings sold and registered in a given period of four consecutive quarters. They are calculated using open data from the Land Registry, a source of comprehensive record level administrative data on property transactions.

For detailed information on aspects of the quality and methodology behind these statistics, see the Quality and Methodology Information document, part of the House Price Statistics for Small Areas release: www.ons.gov.uk/peoplepopulationandcommunity/housing/qmis/housepricestatisticsforsmallareasqmi

Affordability ratios calculated by dividing house prices by gross annual earnings, based on the median and lower quartiles of both house prices and earnings. The earnings data are from the Annual Survey of Hours and Earnings which provides a snapshot of earnings at April in each year. Earnings relate to gross full-time individual earnings on a place of work basis. The house price statistics come from the House Price Statistics for Small Areas, which report the median and lower quartile price paid for residential property and refer to a 12 month period with April in the middle (year ending September). Statistics are available at country, region, county and local authority district level.
