No. 229: Social housing exits: incidence, motivations and consequences

This project explored the factors influencing tenant choices to remain in or depart from public housing. The research found that a small but significant cohort of social housing tenants who are in paid employment and pay full market rent, would consider exiting the sector at their own initiative to become home owners, but not private renters.

No. 228: Living with place disadvantage: community, practice and policy

This report is one of a series drawing on an AHURI Multi-Year Research Project on addressing concentrations of disadvantage in Australia’s major cities. The project’s overall aim was to develop a more sophisticated understanding of how disadvantage is shifting across the urban landscape; what role housing markets and systems play in this process; and how policy-makers and communities might better respond to the forms of disadvantage that ensue. Conceptually, the project sought to advance previous understandings of spatially concentrated disadvantage as manifested in Australia.
