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:

All jurisdictions are asked to supply the single/couple codes in 2011-12 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.
