  1. 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.

  3. 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.

  4. 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.

  5. Young Australians and the housing aspirations gap

    Author(s): Sharon Parkinson; Steven Rowley; Wendy Stone; Amity James; Angela Spinney; Margaret Reynolds

    Description: This research investigated the short and longer term housing aspirations and the housing aspirations gap among ‘emerging adults’ aged 18–24 years and ‘early adults’ aged 25–34 years in order to better understand how their aspirations are linked to a ‘broader life project’ across areas such as education, employment and family formation.

  6. Older Australians and the housing aspirations gap

    Author(s): Amity James; Steven Rowley; Wendy Stone; Sharon Parkinson; Angela Spinney; Margaret Reynolds

    Description: This research examined the housing aspirations of older Australians (i.e. aged 55 years and over), including home owners and renters in the private market and in social housing, to provide the evidence-base for policies needed to deliver their required housing and housing assistance.

  7. Audit of South Australia’s current housing assets and mapping of future demand

    Author(s): Chris Leishman; Emma Baker

    Description: This audit of South Australia's current housing assets and mapping of future demand uses 2016 Census data, survey data, and administrative data. Low income rental stress and mortgage stress is estimated; and a quantitative assessment of housing affordability is included.

  8. The construction of social housing pathways across Australia

    Author(s): Abigail Powell; Ariella Meltzer; Chris Martin; Wendy Stone; Edgar Liu; Kathleen Flanagan; Kristy Muir; Selina Tually

    Description: This report examines the role of policy in shaping social housing pathways (i.e. the changing experience of housing by tenants and their households over time and space) through a review of current social housing operational policies. It considers application processes, eligibility criteria, rent, use of premises, tenant-initiated transfers, portfolio management and tenancy management by landlords.

  9. Social housing as infrastructure: rationale, prioritisation and investment pathway

    Author(s): Julie Lawson; Todd Denham; Jago Dodson; Kathleen Flanagan; Keith Jacobs; Chris Martin; Ryan van den Nouwelant; Hal Pawson; Laurence Troy

    Description: Considering social housing as infrastructure may improve investment in the sector, as well as increase transparency and efficiency in project appraisal and funding prioritisation. It explored different methods of calculating the benefits of social housing relative to cost, including the savings that might accrue in other areas of government expenditure. The research also modelled ways to best finance and fund social housing, revealing that a capital investment strategy supplemented by efficient financing is substantially more cost-effective than a commercially financed model reliant on an operating subsidy.

  10. Social housing legal responses to crime and anti-social behaviour: impacts on vulnerable families

    Author(s): Chris Martin; Daphne Habibis; Lucinda Burns; Hal Pawson

    Description: This research reviewed social housing tenancies law and policies in five jurisdictions, and national policy principles and frameworks relating to four types of vulnerable people: women affected by domestic violence; children; Indigenous persons; and people affected by alcohol and other drugs. Social housing policy in Australia targets assistance to households with low incomes and complex support needs and seeks to give social landlords a role in relation to crime and noncriminal anti-social behaviour.
