Need for assistance - Dwelling type

Dwelling Type is an important determinant of Rockhampton's residential role and function. For people with a disability, housing type can indicate the location where this community lives. It can also indicate the level of assistance with access to housing and transport required by the community.

Dwelling Type statistics should be viewed in conjunction with Household Type, Housing Tenure and Age Structure for a more complete picture of the housing market for people with a disability in Rockhampton.

Derived from the Census:

'Dwelling Type is derived from an assessment by the Census Collector who observes and records the type of dwelling structure.'
