SUMMARY COMMENT

The estimated number of dwelling units approved in Australia rose from 133,088 in 2008-09 to 170,410 in 2009-10, a rise of 28.0%. Of the estimate of total dwelling units approved in 2009-10, 114,790 (67.4%) were new houses whereas in 2008-09 houses accounted for 70.5% of dwelling units approved. The proportion of total new other residential building rose from 28.7% in 2008-09 to 32.2% in 2009-10, driven by rising proportions in New South Wales and Victoria, which rose from 42.2% to 47.5% and 26.3% to 30.3% respectively.
