What are Housing stock statistics?
In line with the Rates Order (Northern Ireland) 1977, Housing stock is defined as a count of properties which are valued as domestic or mixed for the purposes of rating. This refers to properties in the Valuation list which are used (or when next in use, will be used) for the purposes of a private dwelling. This includes properties which are temporary incapable of beneficial occupation, but excludes caravans, domestic garages, domestic stores and car parking spaces.
In April 2019, the total housing stock in Northern Ireland was 798,971.
The tables in the link below show:

Annual figures may be revised, if necessary. Any revisions from the figures published in the previous year will be detailed at the bottom of the relevant table.
Figures previously published for housing stock in the 11 Local Government Districts between 2008 and 2018 have been amended to take account of improvements in the quality of geographical data in the Valuation List.
