Guide for use:Help on this term

This data element is used in the context of the waitlist population. It should be used in conjunction with Household—application date, DDMMYYYY to determine those who have been deemed eligible for services and who are waiting to be allocated to public rental housing or state owned and managed Indigenous housing.

The waiting list population refers to applicants who meet the following criteria:

  • residing in the state of application
  • eligible for assistance
  • wishing to pursue their application.

Potential applicants still awaiting eligibility assessment are excluded.

Collection methods:Help on this term

Households that applied for a transfer and received housing assistance for that financial year should be counted. This includes households that wish to transfer to another dwelling for reasons other than applying for assistance different from what they currently receive.

Include applications from those who have been assisted by another program such as temporary or crisis accommodation while waiting for housing assistance.

Mutual exchanges and same address transfers are excluded from the count of total number of applicant households on the waiting list.

In the public rental housing and state owned and managed Indigenous housing data collections this metadata item is measured over a financial year.
