Many thanks for your email and your interest in the English Private Landlord Survey (EPLS). We agree with your concern about combining the ‘don’t know’ and ‘not applicable’ categories. This issue has already been identified as part of our regular survey review process, and noted as a point to change if we run further waves of the EPLS. This change would be applied not only for the gas safety check question, but for all questions that combine the two responses.
I hope this helps.
So, this is good news – BUT – we need the Government to put a prominent note on the website to draw the attention of users of the data so that they do not keep repeating / proliferating errors.
Anyone for letter writing ? – Please write to your MP, the Housing Minister and Housing Secretary along with anyone else you can think of.
