Housing Loan Repayments (monthly) (HLRD)
This variable records the housing loan repayments being paid by a household to purchase the dwelling in which it was enumerated (also applicable to caravans).
The Census collects this information in single dollars up to $9,999. However, for practical purposes this information is recoded to a specific number of ranges for standard Census products. The ranges are listed as a derived variable, HLRD01.
The data are important in analysis of home ownership and for providing benchmark data for evaluating housing needs, housing finance and housing demand.
