This data set contains household estimates for Dundee City for the period 1991 to 2017. The data is sourced from National Records of Scotland, Estimates of Households and Dwellings in Scotland 2017.© Crown Copyright 2018
National Records have stated that the source of this data set is Council Tax Base Return 2017 and National Records of Scotland 2017 neighbourhood level collection of Council Tax Information.
There are a number of footnotes associated with this data set: 1) In 2013 legislation was introduced to allow councils to increase the Council Tax payable on certain types of long-term empty property. As a result, from 2013 onwards, many councils have carried out reviews of properties classed as vacant or second homes, with some being re-classified as occupied. The legislation also changed the definitions of such properties. In addition there have been some issues with how properties affected by the new charges are recorded. All of this has had an impact on the estimated number of households in this table for many council areas, and for Scotland as a whole. This makes it difficult to determine whether changes since 2012 are a result of real differences 'on-the-ground' or simply reflect the re-classification of properties.
2)Figures for 1991, 2001 and 2011 are based on the number of households recorded in Scotland's Census 1991, 2001 and 2011, and the mid-year population estimates.
3)Figures for 2002 onwards are based on the number of occupied dwellings, adjusted from September to June. They are then adjusted by an amount calculated from the differences in 2001 and in 2011 between the number of occupied dwellings and the number of households recorded in the census.
