  1. 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.

  3. 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.

  5. 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.

  6. 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.
