How many bedrooms do our dwellings have?
Derived from the Census question, "How many bedrooms are there in this dwelling?"
The number of bedrooms in a dwelling provides an indicator of the size of a dwelling, and when combined with Dwelling Type, provides further insight to the role and function an area plays in the housing market. For example, an area of high density dwellings that are predominantly 1-2 bedroom (likely to attract students), will attract a different household type than a high density area with dwellings that are predominantly 2-3 bedroom (perhaps more empty nesters).
In combination with Dwelling Type and Family and Household type data, and Household size, the Number of bedrooms can also indicate issues around housing affordability, overcrowding and other socio-economic factors.
