Written answers (Question to Housing)

Details on the number of households qualified for social housing support in each local authority area are provided in the statutory Summary of Social Housing Assessments (SSHA). The most recently published SSHA, carried out this year, details the number of households on all local authority waiting lists as at 11 June 2018.

The results of the SSHA are available on my Department’s website and include breakdowns by each local authority across a range of categories, including household composition. The 2018 report also includes the results of the 2017 summary for comparative purposes. Full details in relation to the 2018 assessment are available on my Department's website at the following link:
