NEW 2019 Rental Affordability Index: Out Now
To demonstrate rental affordability for different income groups and household types, small area level analysis is undertaken for different household income ranges and dwelling sizes. Incomes range from $5,000 to $200,000 (in $5,000 increments), and dwelling sizes range from 1 to 5 bedrooms as well as all dwellings regardless of number of bedrooms. Indicative household incomes and dwelling sizes for ten typical household types have been developed to illustrate the rental situation for vulnerable cohorts. These are summarised in the table below.
