The report identifies and maps current and historical data to explore rents and affordability in Wales, and understand the market structure in Wales.
Based on a review of available data sources and interviews with stakeholders, 138 datasets were identified containing information relating to the housing market in Wales. The report presents trends and patterns on selected indicators, including private rental affordability, housing quality, rental prices, homelessness, landlord characteristics, and housing tenue among others.
Data gaps and limitations were also identified. In particular, there is a lack of data regarding the characteristics of tenants and landlords, and geographically detailed information is often scarce.
