The 'Housing' chapter discusses various aspects of housing that need to be considered in defining housing as an area of statistical activity, including dwelling characteristics and adequacy, dwelling location, and construction and real estate activity. The many connections between housing and individual and societal wellbeing are discussed, covering the physical, psychological and economic wellbeing effects associated with housing. Key social issues and population groups of interest are identified. The 'Frameworks' section of the chapter, provides details about housing counting units and outlines a framework for assessing housing circumstances, based on the interrelationship between the concepts of housing demand, housing supply and housing outcomes.
