Tenure Type (TEND)

Tenure Type (TEND) describes whether a household rents or owns the dwelling in which they were enumerated on Census night, or whether the household occupies it under another arrangement. TEND is derived from the responses to a series of questions.

The tenure category 'Being purchased under a shared equity scheme' refers to households who are purchasing less than 100% equity in the dwelling, and may or may not be
paying rent for the remainder. This category name changed for 2016 to reflect current terminology. Previously it was 'Being purchased under a rent/buy scheme'.

'Being occupied under a life tenure scheme' refers to households or individuals who hav
e a 'life tenure' contract to live in the dwelling but usually have little or no equity in the dwelling. This is a common arrangement in retirement villages.

TEND is applicable to all occupied private dwellings.

See also Landlord Type (LLDD).
