Scope:Help on this term

The purpose of the State owned and managed Indigenous housing (SOMIH) data set specification is to describe information about tenants in SOMIH dwellings covered by the National Affordable Housing Agreement (NAHA). Included are households residing in SOMIH dwellings where the dwelling is either:

owned by the housing authority; or leased from the private sector or other housing program areas and used for provision of public rental housing.

SOMIH dwellings leased to other program areas such as community housing or crisis and emergency accommodation programs are not included in this collection.

Dwellings no longer under the administration of the property manager/agency at 30 June 2011, (including dwellings demolished, sold or disposed of) and dwellings not yet available to the property manager/agency at 30 June 2011, (such as those still under construction or being purchased) are excluded.

Collection and usage attributes

Statistical unit:Help on this termPersons, Households, Dwellings and Vacancy episodes.
Guide for use:Help on this term

All jurisdictions are asked to supply the single/couple codes in 2010–11 data extractions. Previously, a household’s bedroom requirement has been calculated using the Proxy Occupancy Standard (POS), however under NAHA reporting requirements, the match of a dwelling to household size is based on Canadian National Occupancy Standard (CNOS).

New low income cut–off measures for low income households based on new definition under NAHA.

State and territory housing authorities provide the data to the Australian Institute of Health and Welfare for national collation on an annual basis.

  • Dwellings owned but not administered by the jurisdiction (e.g. leased to other program areas and not administered by state housing authority).
