This Information Paper presents experimental estimates of the imputed rent for owner-occupied dwellings among private households in Australia in 2003-04 and 2005-06. Estimates of the benefit to tenants paying subsidised rent and households occupying their dwelling rent free are also included.

The paper outlines the methodology and sources used in the study and analyses the effect of the imputation on the distribution of income. The publication encourages comments from users on the methodology applied in the study and the usefulness of the resulting estimates for their research and analytical purposes.
