  1. Social housing exit points, outcomes and future pathways: an administrative data analysis

    Author(s): Emma Baker; Chris Leishman; Rebecca Bentley; Ngoc Thien Anh Pham; Lyrian Daniel

    Description: Social housing is increasingly seen by governments and many tenants as just one part of tenants’ broader housing pathways (be it a safety net, stepping-stone, or springboard). This research provides a new national evidence-base on pathways into, within, and out of social housing tenancies to assist understanding of entry and exit patterns, and housing and non-housing outcomes.

  3. Effective downsizing options for older Australians

    Author(s): Amity James; Steven Rowley; Wendy Stone

    Description: This research examined the extent to which downsizing forms part of older Australians’ housing preferences, the actual and perceived benefits of moving as well as the availability of downsize housing options. The research proposes a number of policy strategies for delivering housing alternatives to meet older Australians’ downsizing aspirations.

  4. Understanding the experience of social housing pathways

    Author(s): Kathleen Flanagan; Iris Levin; Selina Tually; Meera Varadharajan; Julia Verdouw; Debbie Faulkner; Ariella Meltzer; Anthea Vreugdenhil

    Description: This study explores the ways households experience pathways into, within and out of the Australian social housing system. Managing social housing waiting lists and encouraging people to exit social housing is a key concern for policy-makers, however housing market failure in Australia is such that the private rental market is largely inaccessible, unaffordable and insecure for households on low incomes.

  5. The supply of affordable private rental housing in Australian cities: short-term and longer-term changes

    Author(s): Kath Hulse; Margaret Reynolds; Christian Nygaard; Sharon Parkinson; Judith Yates

    Description: This research charts the changes in the supply of affordable and available private rental housing for lower income households between 2011 and 2016, and is the latest in a series of projects detailing affordable rental housing supply every five years since 1996 using Census data. There is strong evidence of structural change in the private rental market, with an increase in privately rented dwellings affordable by Q3–Q5 households, while the market is not supplying sufficient rental properties for lower income Q1 and Q2 households.

  6. An effective homelessness services system for older Australians

    Author(s): Charmaine Thredgold; Andrew Beer; Carole Zufferey; Andrew Peters; Angela Spinney

    Description: This study investigated the issues affecting older Australians who are experiencing or facing homelessness including the capacity to access Specialist Homeless Services and other government supports, and potential ways to escape homelessness for older people.

  7. Moving, downsizing and housing equity consumption choices of older Australians

    Author(s): Stephen Whelan; Kadir Atalay; Garry Barrett; Rebecca Edwards

    Description: This study analyses current geographic mobility and downsizing behaviours among Australians aged over 55, and considers the barriers to, and consequences of downsizing. Retired Australians tend to retain high levels of housing wealth (rising to 49% of assets for homeowners aged 75+) and most choose not to downsize, either by moving to a smaller dwelling or a less-expensive home.

  9. Improving housing and service responses to domestic and family violence for Indigenous individuals and families

    Author(s): Kyllie Cripps; Daphne Habibis

    Description: This study investigated the needs of Indigenous women and children who are severely over-represented in rates of domestic and family violence (DFV). Developing culturally appropriate responses to Indigenous DFV and improving integration between housing and DFV and child protection services should reduce rates of Indigenous women's injury and death, as well as rates of Indigenous children's out-of-home care.

  10. Mortgage stress and precarious home ownership: implications for older Australians

    Author(s): Rachel Ong; Gavin Wood; Melek Cigdem; Silvia Salazar

    Description: This research investigated the growing numbers of middle aged and older Australians who are carrying mortgage debt into retirement and paying off higher levels of debt relative to house values and income. Between 1987 and 2015, mortgage debt among older mortgagors increased by 600 per cent (from $27,000 to over $185,000). These trends have significant consequences for older Australians’ wellbeing, retirement wealth management and government incomes policy and housing assistance programs.
