      A new attribute-linked residential property price dataset for England and Wales, 2011 to 2019

      This is not the latest version for this article. If you want to read the latest version, click here.


            Current research on residential house price variation in the UK is limited by the lack of an open and comprehensive house price database that contains both transaction price alongside dwelling attributes such as size. This research outlines one approach which addresses this deficiency in England and Wales through combining transaction information from the official open Land Registry Price Paid Data (LR-PPD) and property size information from the official open Domestic Energy Performance Certificates (EPCs). A four-stage data linkage is created to generate a new linked dataset, representing 79% of the full market sales in the LR-PPD. This new linked dataset offers greater flexibility for the exploration of house price (/m 2 ) variation in England and Wales at different scales over postcode units between 2011 and 2019. Open access linkage codes will allow for future updates beyond 2019.

            Update on data access for reviewers:

            The linked, original EPCs and LR-PPD datasets and linkage codes are deposited and published in UK Data Service's ReShare (https://reshare.ukdataservice.ac.uk/854240/) under an open access data licence that precludes commercial use: the licence for each dataset is clarified along with the data in ReShare. The linked result data(tranall2011_19.csv) is open to the public with the rest of the datasets keep under the temporal embargo during peer review. Reviewers can access all the data for review purposes by firstly registering with UKDS (https://www.ukdataservice.ac.uk/get-data/how-to-access/registration.aspx) and then e-mail reshare@ukdataservice.ac.uk for access by mentioning the record number (854240) in their e-mail.

            This article is a preprint article and has not been peer-reviewed. It is under consideration following submission to UCL Open: Environment Preprint for open peer review.

            In addition, this article was seen as suitable for UCL Open: Environment submission for the following points:

            1. The article reports accurately and easily accessible georeferenced data relevant to the natural and human environment that is an essential part of managing the planet more sustainably.
            2. The article may offer a way of accessing and updating such data more easily.
            3. The integration of house price data with energy performance data may enable housing stocks to be better managed and adaptation and mitigation measures targetted.
