Figures may not sum to totals due to rounding

Please note, these figures should not be summed to give a UK total, or compared between nations due to the following differences:

(1) The latest data available for Wales is from 2008, 2016 data will be published in November 2018.

(2) Figures for Wales relate to number of dwellings (which includes vacant properties) whereas figures for England, Scotland and Northern Ireland relate to number of households (excluding vacant properties).

(3) Each nation uses a different methodology for calculating Energy Performance. The main difference being Welsh figures are based on SAP 2005, whereas figures for England, Scotland and Northern Ireland are based on SAP 2012.
