Wollondilly Shire

Need for assistance - Housing tenure

In Wollondilly Shire 77.8% of people reporting a need for assistance were in households who were purchasing or fully owned their home, 13.0% were renting privately, and 3.9% were in social housing in 2011.

Wollondilly Shire's Housing Tenure data provides insights into its socio-economic status as well as the role it plays in the housing market.

For people with a need for assistance due to a disability, housing tenure may differ significantly in some areas from the general population. For instance, people with a need for assistance may have priority in access to public housing, so the social housing category may be higher. This can give an insight into the housing arrangements of this community and indicate the success of housing programs for people with a disability.

Please view this topic in conjunction with Household Income and Dwelling Type.

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?'

People with a need for assistance, counted in private dwellings
