  1. Profiling Australia's affordable housing industry

    Author(s): Vivienne Milligan; Chris Martin; Rhonda Phillips; Edgar Liu; Hal Pawson; Angela Spinney

    Description: The first of two reports focussing on the affordable housing industry and housing options for lower income households. The research found key gaps in industry infrastructure such as shortcomings in policy-making capacities and regulation. Growth opportunities to promote further capacity development and strategic investment were also identified.

    Author(s): Steven Rowley; Amity James; Catherine Gilbert; Nicole Gurran; Rachel Ong; Peter Phibbs; David Rosen; Christine Whitehead

  3. House prices, household debt and labour supply in Australia

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

    Description: This research analyses the link between house prices, mortgage debt, and labour supply using HILDA data from 2001 to 2012 to see if labour supply changes due to house prices or mortgage debt, and whether this affects some types of households more than others.

  4. What are the health, social and economic benefits of providing public housing and support to formerly homeless people?

    Author(s): Lisa Wood; Paul Flatau; Kaylene Zaretzky; Sarah Foster; Shannen Vallesi; Darja Miscenko

    Description: This report finds that supporting formerly homeless people and those at risk of homelessness into public housing in Western Australia reduces their use of health services as well as the frequency with which they do so.

  5. Transforming public housing in a federal context

    Author(s): Julie Lawson; Crystal Legacy; Sharon Parkinson

  6. The role of private rental brokerage in housing outcomes for vulnerable Australians

    Author(s): Selina Tually; Michele Slatter; Debbie Faulkner; Susan Oakley

    Description: This research explores Australian private rental brokerage programs which provide assistance in securing and sustaining private rental tenancies for disadvantaged tenants. The research identifies a diverse range of activities tailored to individuals and local circumstances, but lacking common terminology, measures and reporting making it difficult to assess the overall success of these programs beyond specific program outcomes.

  7. Housing assistance need and provision in Australia: a household-based policy analysis

    Author(s): Wendy Stone; Sharon Parkinson; Andrea Sharam; Liss Ralston

    Description: This research recommends that housing assistance be provided under a tenure-neutral model. Currently households with similar needs receive fundamentally different levels and types of housing assistance depending on their housing tenure (i.e. owner, private renter, in social housing etc.) rather than needs.

  8. Housing affordability, central city economic productivity and the lower income labour market

    Author(s): Ryan van den Nouwelant; Laura Crommelin; Shanaka Herath; Bill Randolph

    Description: This research found that Australian low income workers who work in the central city have to travel greater distances to get to work and are more likely to make a number of housing related compromises, such as living in a smaller dwelling, sharing with unrelated adults, or renting rather than buying. However, the effects of the housing challenges faced by low income central city workers are not currently registering on productivity and economic growth measurements in Australian cities.

    Author(s): Mark Moran; Paul Memmott; Daphne Nash; Christina Birdsall-Jones; Shaneen Fantin; Rhonda Phillips; Daphne Habibis

    Description: Tenants, government housing providers and Indigenous organisations are often seeking different outcomes from social housing, which leads to considerable misunderstanding and diversity of views.
