The Australian Institute of Health and Welfare (AIHW) has developed a new housing data dashboard in conjunction with Treasury. The dashboard brings together data from 20 datasets contributing over 7 million data points.
The housing data dashboard covers topics from the entire housing spectrum, including the housing market, regional population changes and homelessness.
From the 27th to the 30th of August 2019, we showcased the new housing data dashboard at the National Housing Conference in Darwin. The 2019 National Housing Conference was the largest gathering for the social and affordable housing sectors in Australia.
Visit www.housingdata.gov.au to create a customisable dashboard from over 50 dashboard tiles that can be saved, shared or exported elsewhere. Each tile is an interactive graph or table that can be used to dig deeper into the data. The tiles are also a gateway to the data source, where detailed analysis and additional data are presented.
The Hon Luke Howarth MP, Assistant Minister for Community Housing, Homelessness and Community Services and The Hon Michael Sukkar MP, Minister for Housing and Assistant Treasurer published a joint media release. Mr Howarth said: "I've met with many housing providers and homeless organisations who have stressed to me the importance of having access to up to date data. This database is going to fill that void and will enable more transparency within the sector."
