AHURI – Where is the greatest need for social housing in Australia

While 384,700 households across Australia were housed in social housing in 2016 (4.4% of all households), an even greater number were in need of it—estimated to be around 433,000 households (5% of all households).

Recent AHURI research developed a demographic model to assess the level and distribution of social housing need across Australia. The analysis took into account existing social housing provision, the current backlog of unaddressed need, as well as the needs likely to arise over the next 20 years. The research then factored in housing and land markets to calculate the cost of procuring the required housing in 88 different areas across Australia.
