A comprehensive evidence base

housing.id presents a clear story of housing supply, demand and affordability in your community.

Understand the interrelationships between

  • population and households
  • housing supply and approvals
  • housing affordability and availability
  • house prices and local incomes
Designed for strategic planning and advocacy teams, housing.id combines demographic, economic, housing and population forecast in one place.

Track your progress

Councils told us point-in-time data is their #1 frustration with the current evidence base for planning and advocacy.

As a shared online data source, housing.id is updated annually, so you can plan with consistent metrics and monitor progress toward your goals.

Understand incomes, understand housing stress

A quirk of the ABS’ standard income reporting is that household income is shown in ‘brackets’, making it difficult to report on the number of households experiencing housing stress given your local housing prices.

We’ve worked with the ABS to source more granular income data, giving you a detailed assessment of the number of people in housing stress in your area.

By conducting a dwelling yield analysis with .id, we were able to demonstrate to the DPLG that our contribution to the western region population targets as detailed in the 30 Year Plan, could be provided in a way that suits our character and protects our heritage.
