    HOMELESSNESS

    An estimated 99,900 people were homeless on Census Night 2001. Homeless people are among the most marginalised people in Australia and their profile has changed in recent years from that of older, lone men to include more women, youth and families. This article summarises data and analysis from the Australian Census Analytic Program report
    Counting the Homeless (ABS cat. no. 2050.0) by Chris Chamberlain and David MacKenzie. It estimates the numbers of homeless people in Australia in 2001 and discusses their characteristics.

    HOUSING COSTS

    HOME OWNERSHIP


    The proportion of homeowners or purchasers among younger age groups has diminished between 1986 and 2001. This may be related to economic conditions, a delaying effect due to our changing society, or personal choices. The increasing price of housing is also examined in this article, aswell as the relationship between the size of first home loans and average earnings.


    HOUSING AND LIFESTYLE

    HIGH-RISE LIVING

    The number of people living in four or more storey apartment blocks increased at a much faster rate than the overall Australian population between 1981 and 2001. This article compares the socio-demographic characteristics of high rise residents with those of people living in separate houses, and discusses some ways in which the high rise residential population has changed over the last two decades.
