Landlord Type (LLDD)
This variable provides information on the type of landlord for rented dwellings. It applies to all households who are renting the dwelling (including caravans, etc. in caravan parks) in which they are enumerated on Census Night. Landlord Type allows data to be produced for studies of the socioeconomic characteristics of tenants of public authority housing. It also allows for comparisons with tenants in privately owned accommodation.
The question on Landlord Type on the 2006 Census form was expanded. The 2001 Census response 'Private landlord not in the same household' was replaced with the responses 'Parent/Other relative not in this dwelling' and 'Other person not in this dwelling'. The response 'Other' was excluded, and the response 'Residential park (including caravan parks and marinas)' was included.
Also in 2006, a generic response category for state or territory housing authority was used. In the 2001 Census, the specific names of each of the state/territory housing authorities were included on the Census forms for their state/territory.
