Description: This Positioning Paper is the first output of a project that explores the housing options and actual housing circumstances of asset-poor older Australians. The overall aim of the project is to provide evidence to Australian policy makers confronted with the issue of asset-poor older Australians who may not be able to spend their retirement years as appropriately and securely housed self-funded retirees.
