(2016) Is deteriorating housing affordability reducing lower income central city worker supply and productivity?, AHURI Research and Policy Bulletin No. 210, Australian Housing and Urban Research Institute Limited, Melbourne, https://www.ahuri.edu.au/research/research-and-policy-bulletins/210
Description: This research found that Australian low income workers who work in the central city have to travel greater distances to get to work and are more likely to make a number of housing related compromises, such as living in a smaller dwelling, sharing with unrelated adults, or renting rather than buying. However, the effects of the housing challenges faced by low income central city workers are not currently registering on productivity and economic growth measurements in Australian cities.
