Collection and usage attributes

Guide for use:

This metadata item should always be recorded as an 8-digit valid date comprising day, month and year. Year should always be recorded in its full 4-digit format. For days and months with a numeric value of less than 10, zeros should be used to ensure that the date contains the required 8 digits. For example, the date July 1 2002 should be recorded as 01072002.

Collection methods:

If the date the dwelling was vacated by tenants is not known, for example, abandonment by tenants, the date the dwelling is discovered to be vacant should be used instead.

The Dwelling—date vacated, DDMMYYYY may not be the same as the Housing service episode-assistance completion date, DDMMYYYY as tenants may move out of a dwelling before the Dwelling—date vacated, DDMMYYYY.
