  2. Housing affordability, central city economic productivity and the lower income labour market

    Author(s): Ryan van den Nouwelant; Laura Crommelin; Shanaka Herath; Bill Randolph

    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.
