Rental Affordability Index

Shelter Australia, Community Sector Banking and SGS Economics and Planning have formed a partnership to develop and release the Rental Affordability Index (RAI). The RAI is intended to complement the Housing Affordability Index (HAI) developed by the Commonwealth Bank of Australia and Housing Industry Association (HIA). It is an easy to understand indicator of rental affordability applied to geographic areas across Australia. This report has been prepared in support of the second RAI release.
