Footnote (FULL)

Data for the UK is created by aggregating published data from the individual countries.

We are aware of issues with the quarterly figures used for England, we are working to update these to net additional dwellings data.

A dwelling is counted as “started” on the date work begins on laying the foundation and as "completed" when it becomes ready for occupation or when a completion certificate is issued.
