Alternative approaches to measuring rental housing affordability in Australia. /

by Landt, John | National Centre for Social and Economic Modelling | Bray, Rob.

Publisher: Canberra, A.C.T National Centre for Social and Economic Modelling, University of Canberra 1997Description: v, 49 p. ; 21 cm.Other title: NATSEM. Discussion paper ; no. 16.Online Access: Electronic copy Notes: April 1997. Includes bibliographical references.Summary: The study analyses a range of approaches to measuring housing affordability in the Australian private rental market. In particular, it compares traditional consumption-based measures of housing affordability with a new measure of housing affordability based on the Canadian core housing need model, which includes the suitability of the dwelling for the household's needs as well as its cost. The main findings of the study are that low income earners in the private rental market generally pay rents similar to those of higher income earners. This results in housing stress for some low income families and individuals in the private rental market.Availability: (1)

Better housing futures : stimulating private investment in affordable housing : report to the Affordable Housing Forum

by Allen Consulting Group | Brotherhood of St Laurence.

Publisher: Fitzroy, Vic. Brotherhood of St Laurence 2004Description: x.,49p.Other title: Better housing futures 1.Online Access: Electronic copy | Summary Notes: Includes bibliographical referencesSummary: This report prepared for the Affordable Housing Forum documents an investigation of policy options to finance an increased supply of affordable rental housing. This is needed because the shortage of such housing limits low-income households' access to employment and services, whereas well-located affordable housing contributes to efficient labour markets and economic growth. The authors considered three options -- governments bonds, public-private partnerships and tax credits. They argue that a relatively modest financial outlay by government would be sufficient to alleviate housing stress and achieve substantial social and economic benefits.Availability: Items available for reference: BSL Archives (1).
