Supported Accommodation Flag (SAFD)

The Supported Accommodation Flag (SAFD) includes accommodation specified by state/territory bodies or service providers as supported accommodation for persons without a permanent residence.

When utilising this flag, it should be noted that the comprehensiveness of the lists provided may vary considerably between state/territories.

In addition, the flagging of individual addresses as providing supported accommodation is dependent on their ability to be successfully matched to the corresponding Census record for that dwelling.

During Census processing, individual addresses on the lists provided from each state and territory will be matched to the census record of the corresponding dwelling, which will subsequently be flagged (through a dwelling code of "1") as providing supported accommodation in the Supported Accommodation Flag (SAFD).

The Supported Accommodation Flag (SAFD) was made available as an output item for the first time for the 2011 Census. Data is available on request.

Information about data quality for the Supported Accommodation Flag (SAFD) will be made available at the time of data release.
