In September 2012 the Department for Communities and Local Government (DCLG) published a report, Changes to the Department’s statistics on Land Use Change, Local Authority Housing Statistics and Regional Outputs: Summary of consultation responses , which included the intended action following the consultation. The report stated that the Department would cease the publication of summary statistics by region in its outputs from October 2012 onwards (except where the publication date had already been announced). It said that the Department would begin to present alternative sub-national geographic data in 2013 and that this would be fully in place by the end of the year.
