Urban productivity and affordable rental housing supply in Australian cities and regions

Nicole Gurran, Kath Hulse, Jago Dodson, Madeleine Pill, Robyn Dowling, Margaret Reynolds, Sophia Maalsen

This research examines the relationships between urban productivity and affordable rental housing, focusing particularly on the location and availability of affordable rental housing relative to employment and labour markets in capital cities and satellite cities. Lower income (Q2) workers who play critical roles in urban economies are more likely to experience housing stress (exceeding 30% of their income on housing costs) in these markets.
