The Dwelling Type of New Completions provides data on the house type of new dwelling completions, broken down by single house, scheme house or apartment. The series begins at Q1 2011.
Dwelling type is a useful indicator in assessing density, which is an important issue in the housing market today. Apartments represent higher density dwellings, whilst separate dwellings are more likely to attract one family. Dwelling type statistics are most useful when viewed in conjunction with household size, household type and age structure for a more complete picture of the housing market.
