Scottish Conservative and Unionist Party

Date lodged: 27 April 2017

To ask the Scottish Government how many homeless people have used temporary accommodation in each year since 2012.

Answered by: Kevin Stewart 9 May 2017

Data on the number of homeless people using temporary accommodation in each year is not currently available.

The HL2 data collection provides a snapshot of the number of households in temporary accommodation at the end of each quarter. This is published on a
bi-annual basis. The most recent published data is from 30 September 2016 and is available in Table 8 of the publication Homelessness in Scotland: Update to 30 September 2016 http://www.gov.scot/Resource/0051/00512963.xls.
