Not all population groups in Australia experience the same housing circumstances. A significant aspect of social policy is to identify and meet the housing requirements of specific Australian population groups to address the key issue of shelter. A key focus of policy is to ensure that the role of inadequate housing, as a potential risk factor for poor health and other adverse social outcomes, is diminished.

This section discusses housing circumstances across the states and territories, and looks at population groups within Australia who face the challenges of inadequate or relatively high cost housing, including Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Australians, and one parent households.
