Context:Help on this term

Landlord type and tenure type are important because of the significance of housing costs in personal and household budgets and the varying degrees of security the different tenure types offer.

Landlord type gives further details on the nature of a person's rental arrangements. Linking human service outcomes with peoples housing situations has been identified as an important step in providing better targeted services. The Tenure type of peoples living situations plays an important role in their health and welfare outcomes. For example, people with insecure tenure are more likely to suffer negative health and/or welfare impacts, such as drug or alcohol problems. Also people with poor health status may be more likely to find themselves in insecure tenure arrangements as result of their health.

Comments:Help on this term

Prior to 13 March 2018, the definition of the ‘Person’ Object class was ‘A human being, whether man, woman or child’. From 13 March 2018, the definition was edited by removing the words ‘…whether man, woman or child’ so that a person is defined as ‘A human being’. This amendment was undertaken to align the definition of a person with the Australian Government Guidelines on the Recognition of Sex and Gender and the Australian Bureau of Statistics (ABS) Standard for Sex and Gender Variables, which recognise that there are sex and gender types that are not exclusively male or female.
