Rental Affordability Snapshot 2015

In its sixth year, the 2015 Anglicare Australia Rental Affordability Snapshot reports shows that affordable housing is still very much out of reach for people living on low incomes. The Snapshot shows that of the more than 65,500 properties assessed for suitability there were less than 1% available for people living on allowances. A new household was also included this year – a couple household where one parent earns the minimum wage and the other is in receipt of the parenting payment – which would have access to 6.9% of rental properties.
