Data notes

Because of the year-based definition of recent arrivals, no time series information is shown for this group.

For dwelling related topics (household type, household income, bedrooms etc), only household members who arrived in the specified time period are counted in the table. If more than one household member arrived in that time period, there will be multiple counts for the same household in the table.
