    NAME OF ORGANISATION
    Australian Bureau of Statistics (ABS)

    OVERVIEW

    Survey of Adelaide households to determine housing history, ownership, reasons for moving and characteristics of current and previous dwellings and neighbourhoods.

    PURPOSE

    To provide a basis for State Government decision-making to achieve greater levels of efficiency from existing and intended residential land. Information required to assist this decision-making process includes factors influencing the choice of housing types and location, attitudes to housing types and the relationships between demographic variables and the former.

    SCOPE

    Households living in the Adelaide Statistical Division in private dwellings except:

    1. members of the permanent defence forces;
    2. certain diplomatic personnel of overseas governments, customarily excluded from census and estimated populations;
    3. overseas residents in Australia; and
    4. members of non-Australian defence forces (and their dependants) stationed in Australia.

    Coverage

    As per the Labour Force Survey, coverage rules are applied which aim to ensure that each person/household is associated with only one dwelling, and hence has only one chance of selection. The chance of a person/household being enumerated at two separate dwellings in the one survey is considered to be negligible.

    Persons/households who are away from their usual residence for six weeks or less at the time of interview are enumerated at their usual residence (relevant information may be obtained from other usual residents present at the time of the survey)
