Housing is critically important for people’s wellbeing and security. Some Australians struggle to access safe and affordable housing. Housing assistance can provide support in such situations, through access to social housing (such as rental housing below market rates) and targeted financial assistance (such as rent or home purchase assistance).
Data in this report are primarily sourced from the AIHW National Housing Assistance Data Repository. Compiled and managed by the AIHW, this repository contains data from the public housing (PH), state owned and managed Indigenous housing (SOMIH), community housing (CH) and Indigenous community housing (ICH) collections. Administrative data from financial assistance programs – private rental and home purchase assistance – is also included.
Key results from Housing assistance in Australia 2019 include:
Social housing tenants
Social housing dwellings
Overcrowding and underutilisation
Priority groups and wait lists
All data are available in the data tables, organised by topics.
This report also contains a state and territory data visualisation with key information about housing assistance at the national and state and territory levels.
For further information about the social housing and financial assistance collections, see the Data quality statements.
