English Housing Survey

Series abstract

The English Housing Survey (EHS) began in 2008-09, bringing together two previous housing surveys into a single fieldwork operation: the English House Condition Survey (EHCS) which ran in 5 years between 1967 and 2001 and became continuous from 2002 to 2007, and the Survey of English Housing (SEH) which ran from 1993/94 to 2007-08. Commissioned by the Department for Communities and Local Government (DCLG), the EHS collects information from households on housing circumstances. It includes a household questionnaire, a physical assessment of the property and in some years, a desk-based market value assessment. A periodic follow-up survey of private landlords and agents (the Private Landlords Survey (PLS)) is conducted using information from the EHS interview survey.
