45% of new housing association tenants who are heads of households were unemployed in the year 1992/93 according to the National Federation of Housing Associations.

A statement from the Federation says the figure reflects the fact that housing associations are increasingly housing the poorest members of our communities. The average income of new tenants during 1992/93 was £101 - a third of the national average household income.

Local authority nominations increased as a proportion of association lettings from 28% in 1989/90 to 46% in 1992/93. 40% of local authority nominations were statutory homeless households.

The figures are in CORE annual statistics 1992/93 from the NFHA, 175 Gray's Inn Road, London WC1X 8UP, tel: 071-278 6571, price £12.50.
