    Good blog, thank you. Using household income in conjunction with an increase in the size of households perhaps helps to mask some of the impacts our housing market carries. I find it significant that ownership has dropped, along with a drop in the availability of social housing.

    Great comparison article! However unfortunately the statement “Renters pay the largest share of their income on housing” is true of many households, especially that of students, it is becoming increasingly harder for 1st time renters to move out of the parental home. We are being priced out of the Sydney housing market and although there is no ‘quick fix’ it is essential that more services become available to low income Australians. K.M
