Publication date: 
February 2016

The Housing and Homelessness Policy Consortium, a partnership between ACTCOSS, ACT Shelter, the Women’s Centre for Health Matters and the Youth Coalition of the ACT, have released reports and snapshots from Projects 2 and 3.

The research provides:

  • Analysis of the findings from a survey of 1000 Canberra households we commissioned Newspoll to undertake on housing costs, their impact on household budgets and compromises people are making in order to pay the rent/mortgage
  • An examination of the social and economic impacts of housing affordability in the ACT and its interaction with the labour market
  • Demographic and economic modelling of future housing demand in the ACT.

The full reports are available below. For a summary of findings from the reports, please see the snapshot documents.
