This release provides statistics on the private rental market for England.  This is an update to a previous release last published on 30th May 2013.  The release presents the mean (average), median, lower quartile, and upper quartile gross monthly rent paid (ignoring any adjustment for services not eligible for housing benefit), for a number of bedroom/room categories (see Methodology section) for each Local Authority (LA) in England for the 12 months to the end of September 2013.

These statistics are simple price averages and not suitable for comparisons over time due to the changing composition of the underlying data.

For all tables, where the calculated statistics are derived from fewer than 10 observations, these statistics will be suppressed and appear as “-“.
