Dwelling stock statistics are currently only available from the Census of Population and Housing every five years. More frequent estimates of dwelling stock are valuable for economic and housing policy development and evaluation, and informing planning and service provision decisions. The Australian Bureau of Statistics is currently developing a methodology for the production of quarterly estimates of small area dwelling stock for release in 2022. This article presents preliminary data on the number of dwellings approved for demolition from the September 2016 quarter to the June 2021 quarter by Statistical Area Level 2 (SA2).
If you have any feedback on these preliminary data and the potential for producing ongoing quarterly estimates beyond 2022, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
