NAME OF ORGANISATION
Survey of Adelaide households to determine housing history, ownership, reasons for moving and characteristics of current and previous dwellings and neighbourhoods.
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.
Households living in the Adelaide Statistical Division in private dwellings except:
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)
Information was collected from households in the Adelaide Statistical Division on:
Current dwelling type by tenure
Tenure by income/housing costs/future tenure
Age of dwelling by problems
Reasons for recent movers moving house
Reasons for intending movers moving house
Current dwelling type by future dwelling type
Basic demographic classifications (such as age, sex) are used.
