What is it?
If your household has entered a new social housing tenancy after 1989, social housing providers would have shared your personal information with the Government for research and statistical purposes.
The information is provided via CORE (COntinuous REcording). CORE was set up in 1989 and initially only recorded data from private registered providers, but from 2004 local authority lettings are also recorded. It collects information on the tenants/buyers, tenancy/sale and dwelling itself. Information collected via CORE may be shared with other Government Departments and Agencies, for example the Greater London Authority or the Homes and Communities Agency.
Data is only shared for research and statistical purposes.
