SAHA - Households in Housing Stress - 30% (LGA) 2011

This dataset contains Housing Affordability Supply and Demand Data represented as the number of households paying more than 30% of their household income on housing (rent or mortgage) broken down by very low, low and moderate income brackets.

This dataset relates to section 4, Housing Stress, of the Affordability master reports produced by the SA Housing Authority. Each master report covers one Local Government Area and is entitled ‘Housing Affordability – Demand and Supply by Local Government Area’.

Explanatory Notes: Data sourced from the Australian Bureau of Statistics (ABS), Census for Population and Housing and it is updated every 5 years in line with the ABS Census.

The nature of the income imputation means that the reported proportion may significantly overstate the true proportion. Census housing stress data is best used in comparing results over Censuses (ie did it increase or decrease in an area) rather than using it to ascertain what proportion of households were in rental stress.

Income bands are based on household income.

High income households can also experience rental stress. These households are included in the total but not identified separately. Data is representative of households in very low, low and moderate income brackets.

Please note that there are small random adjustments made to all cell values to protect the confidentiality of data. These adjustments may cause the sum of rows or columns to differ by small amounts from table totals.

Field Definitions: LGA Name – 2011 Local Government Areas are an ABS approximation of officially gazetted LGAs as defined by each State and Territory Local Government Department. The boundaries produced for LGAs are constructed from allocations of whole Mesh Blocks and reviewed annually.

Tenure Type – This is a consolidation of the census tenure and landlord types. The following definitions have been used: Rented: Private and not stated – this is comprised of rented dwellings (excluding rent-free) where the Landlord type is a Real Estate Agent, Person not in the same household or where the Landlord type is not stated Rented: Other – this is comprised of rented dwellings (excluding rent-free) where the Landlord type is Employer (Govt or other), Housing co-operative/community/church group, or Residential park (incl caravan parks and marinas) Rented: TOTAL – this is comprised of the sum of ‘Rented: Public’, ‘Rented: Private and not stated’ and ‘Rented: Other landlord’. Please note that this field should be excluded when summing the total households Other tenure types – this is comprised of dwellings that are owned outright, occupied rent-free, occupied under a life tenure scheme, other tenure types and tenure type not stated. Total Households – this is comprised of the sum of ‘Being purchased (incl rent/buy)’, ‘Rented: TOTAL’ and ‘Other tenure types’.

Total - Includes all South Australian households who are paying 30% or more of their income on housing (rent or mortgage) and not just those on a low, very low or moderate income.
