NSW DEPARTMENT OF HOUSING, NSW PUBLIC HOUSING DATA COLLECTION
8 The collection provides a snapshot of public housing properties (stock) and tenancies as at 30 June each year. This product presents data for 2006.
KEY DATA ITEMS
9 The collection uses the National Housing Assistance Data Dictionary (NHADD) Version 3 where possible, which can be found on the Australian Institute of Health and Welfare web site (see paragraph 18). The following definitions are from the NSW Department of Housing and the NHADD Version 3.
10 Properties: Refers to properties owned by the NSW Housing and Land Corporation or head-leased by the Department. Data presented on public housing properties in this product are for occupied or vacant tenantable public housing properties only (see paragraphs 5 and 6 for details).
11 Rental subsidy: The difference between the market rent of the properties and the rent charged to the tenant based on income (NHADD Version 3).
12 Tenant: Refers to households holding a tenancy agreement with the NSW Department of Housing (see paragraph 7 for tenant eligibility).
13 The data are coded based on the Local Government Area of the public housing properties and tenancies. The 2006 edition of the Australian Standard Geographical Classification (ASGC) (cat. No. 1216.0) was used in the coding.
14 Information about public housing is recorded and updated by Client Service Officers in the Department's Integrated Housing System (IHS). Aggregated data on public housing properties and tenancies is extracted from the IHS for the purpose of analysis.
15 As data in this collection are obtained from an administrative system, they are not subject to sampling variability. However, other inaccuracies collectively referred to as non-sampling error may affect the data. These non-sampling errors may arise from a number of sources, including:
16 Summary data are published by the Department of Housing in its Annual Report and by the Australian Institute of Health and Welfare (AIHW) in the Annual Commonwealth State Housing Agreement (CSHA) National Data Reports. The scope of data in the CSHA reports is slightly different than that presented in this product.
