Household—rebated rent status

Metadata item type:Help on this termData Element Concept
METeOR identifier:Help on this term269669
Registration status:Help on this termHousing assistance, Superseded 10/02/2006
Definition:Help on this term

A household receiving housing assistance, (usually via a state or territory or community housing organisation), who as part of the assistance, pay less than the market rent value of the dwelling.

This metadata item is only relevant to those people who are provided a dwelling as part of their assistance. It does not include those households that only receive monetary assistance to help them rent in the private market (rent assistance) or to help them purchase a home or equity in it (home purchase assistance).

For example, a public housing dwelling may be assessed as having a market rent value of $200 per week. On assessing the applicant household though, the State housing authority calculates that this household should pay no more than $100 per week on rent. If this household is then allocated to this dwelling with a rent of $100, (while the market rent value is $200), then the household is considered to be rebated.

Collection and usage attributes

Guide for use:Help on this term

For housing data collections, the number of tenancy agreements is a practical proxy for calculating the number of households receiving housing assistance.

The persons in the group may pool their incomes and have a common budget to a greater or lesser extent: they may be related or unrelated persons, or a combination of both.

Only usual residents of the household are included as members of the household. Visitors to a household are, by definition, excluded from the household.
