Comments:Help on this term

For the Community Housing Infrastructure Needs Survey (CHINS) collection, housing organisations in receivership or liquidation at the time of enumeration were excluded.

For the purposes of presenting CHINS results, Indigenous housing organisations were classified as follows:

  • Urban housing organisation: refers to an organisation managing housing only outside of discrete Indigenous communities; and
  • Discrete community housing organisation: refers to an organisation managing housing in one or more discrete Indigenous communities, with or without housing in other locations.
