The State Owned and Managed Indigenous Housing (SOMIH) data set specification defines information about SOMIH tenancies covered by the National Affordable Housing Agreement (NAHA). Included are households residing in SOMIH dwellings where the dwelling is either:

  • owned by the state/territory housing authority; or
  • head-leased from private market or other housing program areas and managed by the state/territory housing authority for provision of public housing.

The SOMIH data set specification excludes dwellings:

  • owned but not administered by the state/territory housing authority (for example, dwellings leased to other program areas, such as community housing or crisis and emergency accommodation programs)
  • no longer under the administration of the state/territory housing authority at 30 June of the reference period (including dwellings demolished, sold or otherwise disposed of); and
  • not yet available to the state/territory housing authority at 30 June of the reference period (including those still under construction or being purchased).
