HOUSING DATA SOURCES AND DEFINITIONS

Housing for young adult households
Young adulthood is typically a time of many life transitions including changes in living arrangements and housing. In 2003–04, 71% of all young adults (aged 18–34 years) lived away from their parents and young adult households (those with a reference person aged 18–34 years) accounted for 22% of all Australian households. This article examines the changes in housing tenure patterns of young adult households between 1994–95 and 2003–04 and well as characteristics of these households such as their living arrangements, income, and housing costs associated with the different types of tenure.

Housing in Sydney – consolidation and spread
In this article, the Local Government Areas in Sydney's Statistical Division have been divided into three geographic rings: inner, middle and outer. Between 1991 and 2005, the outer ring of Sydney experienced the greatest proportional increase in population (21%) compared to the middle (10%) and inner (12%) rings. Just over half (52%) of all approvals for new residential buildings in the 2001–05 period were for those situated in the outer ring. While houses are the still the predominant type of dwelling in Sydney, the trend in building approvals has been towards higher density housing and away from separate houses.
