This research was undertaken in three stages.
Three projects that operated in parallel:
- A comprehensive review of the literature relating to 21st century housing careers in Australia and internationally;
- Review and analysis of existing data sets for insights into 21st century housing careers. These data sets will form a benchmark against which we can measure change captured in our own data collection; and
- Qualitative analysis of the housing preferences and consumption patterns of key consumer groups. This will include early retirees, 25 to 34 year olds, youth et cetera.
The results from Stage 1 were used in Stage 2 to frame a major data collection exercise – the Housing 21 Survey- alongside a process of consultation with key stakeholders about the Stage 1 findings. Stage 2 consisted of the design, development, implementation and analysis of this data set.
In Stage 3 further qualitative analysis was undertaken. This additional stage used a range of qualitative methods to investigate in greater depth some of the key issues and finding emerging from the Housing 21 Survey.
