The Australian Housing Conditions Survey

Project Details

The Australian Housing Conditions Survey

Key Aims/Outcomes

To provide a timely, systematic and accessible data resource on Australia’s housing conditions.


Project Summary

The project has systematically gathered a robust data infrastructure on the housing conditions of Australians. In order to provide a dataset of sufficient depth, it was focussed on three States (New South Wales, Victoria, and South Australia). This Project is designed as a baseline dataset, made available to researchers and policy stakeholders to use and build upon. The dataset sits with a package of standardised research protocols and survey tools enabling researchers to replicate the survey with target populations while still retaining the ability for comparison with baseline Australian housing condition characteristics.
