Identifying and definitional attributes

Object class:Housing assistance agency
Definition:Help on this term

An organisation or organisational sub-unit that is responsible for the provision of housing assistance to people.

Defining Agency is extremely important for data collection, as it is the level at which most data are collected in the housing assistance and other human service areas.

Regardless of the way in which an organisation is funded, a housing assistance agency is the level of the organisation responsible for the provision of housing assistance to people. In some instances one organisation will have more than one or many agencies.

Different collections define Agency differently according to their context and varying need for information on the different levels of organisations providing services or assistance. Individual data collections will therefore need to further specify what a housing assistance agency is for their collection purposes.

In the mainstream community housing data collection, a housing assistance agency corresponds to the definition of 'Community housing provider'. In the public rental housing and state owned and managed Indigenous housing data collections, a housing assistance agency corresponds to the state or territory housing authority (Head Office).

National Housing Assistance Data Dictionary specific:

Recurrent expenditure on goods and services is expenditure, which does not result in the creation or acquisition of fixed assets (new or second-hand). It consists mainly of expenditure on wages, salaries and supplements, purchases of goods and services and consumption of fixed capital (depreciation).

When fees charged for goods and services are offset against recurrent expenditure, the result equates to final consumption expenditure in the Australian Bureau of Statistics' national accounts framework.

Includes:

  • Operating expenses
  • Tenancy manager revenue and expense components.
