Every year, on one weekend in April, Anglicare Tasmania collects information on all the properties advertised for rent across the State. Anglicare Australia member organisations do similarly so that we have data from the whole country. We assess whether the properties are appropriate and affordable for people living on low incomes – on Centrelink payments or earning the minimum wage. In 2015 we assessed 1,842 properties across Tasmania and found that only a very few were affordable for people on a low income.
Summaries are available for the whole state and for the south, north and north west regions or you can read the full national report.
