The table below provides our estimates of the breakdown of the housing stock in 2012-13:

A or B

C

D

E

F

G

Private rented sector on housing benefit

0.5%

15.2%

49.5%

26.5%

6.6%

1.7%

All private rented sector

1.0%

18.9%

46.2%

24.5%

7.0%

2.5%

Those on housing benefit are less likely to be in the most energy inefficient housing (F and G), compared to the generality of the private rented sector.

We do not hold figures on housing benefit payments by energy efficiency rating, nor do we hold specific figures on numbers of housing benefit properties by energy efficiency rating.
