This study examines the changing structure of the rental market in Australia from 1986 and 1996 and is based upon an analysis of census data in each of those two years with consistently defined census data. It focuses specifically on the low rent end of the private rental market, on the households in the low rent stock and on the households for whom low rent stock is essential if their housing is to be affordable. The study is important because of the increasing reliance on the private rental market in australia and, particularly, because of the increasing reliance on this market for lower income households
