Living in Wales

Series abstract

The Living in Wales (LIW) survey series ran from 2004 to 2008 and was the main general source of statistical information about households and the condition of homes in Wales. The LIW was sometimes called the Welsh Household and Dwelling Survey and replaces the former Welsh House Condition Survey (WHCS). From 2012, the National Survey for Wales (NSW) replaced the LIW.
