City of Tea Tree Gully

Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander profile - Housing tenure

Housing Tenure data provides an insight into the socio-economic status of the indigenous community and what housing role the area plays in the community. For example, in some areas, the indigenous community is reliant on public housing. In other areas, most dwellings are owned by a community co-op, while some areas are mortgage dominated, providing home-ownership opportunities for the population. This can have an impact on social cohesion and the type of council services required by the population.

Housing tenure data should be viewed in conjunction with Employment Status, and Household Type, information to build the demographic story of the area.

Derived from the Census questions:

'Is this dwelling (owned outright, owned with a mortgage etc.)', and 'If this dwelling is being rented, who is it rented from?'
