Update 15 April 2015

An error was found in the labelling of two census variables (numbered 32 and 33 in the supporting documentation) used in helping to define two Subgroups. As a result two Subgroups have now been renamed:

4a1 is now Social Renting Young Families (previously Private Renting Young Families)
4a2 is now Private Renting New Arrivals (previously Social Renting New Arrivals)

All supporting material has been updated to reflect these changes, in particular this affects references to households privately renting and socially renting in the Pen Portraits.

ONS apologises for any inconvenience caused.
