Tenure and Landlord Type (TENLLD)

This variable combines Tenure Type and Landlord Type to provide more detailed information for dwellings being rented. This variable is applicable to all occupied private dwellings.

How this variable is created

Tenure and Landlord Type is a dwelling variable that is derived from responses to the Tenure Type and Landlord Type questions on the Census Household Form. Images of these questions are provided below.

Variable history

This combined variable was first available for use during the 2011 Census. Prior to this, data was obtained from manually combining the Tenure Type and Landlord Type variables. This variable was unchanged for the 2016 Census.

Non-response rate

Non-response rate only applies to data items that directly reflect responses to individual Census form questions. Tenure and Landlord Type does not have a non-response rate as it is a derived value created during Census processing for applicable households. For more information, refer to Understanding Census data quality.

Data usage notes

Dwellings occupied rent-free are classified as rented. Other Tenure Type includes dwellings being occupied under a life tenure scheme. Owned with a mortgage includes dwellings being purchased under a shared equity scheme.

Further information

A definition of Tenure and Landlord Type is available in the 2016 Census Dictionary.
