Supply of housing

Between 1991-92 and 2003-04 construction was completed on 145,000 new residential dwellings on average per year. Of these completions, the majority (72%) were separate houses while 28% of completions were higher density dwellings. This article explores changes in Australia's housing supply, specifically the location and structure of dwellings since the 1990's by examining new residential constructions.

Housing for older Australians

As people age, their living arrangements and housing needs may also change. In 2002-03, 80% of older person households owned their dwelling outright. This article looks at the household and housing characteristics of the 1.5 million households where the reference person was aged 65 or older. Also discussed are older Australians who live in cared accommodation and institutions.
