Pathways to Health & Wellbeing through Housing Discovery Project
Recent evidence suggests that increasing numbers of Australian households are experiencing housing problems, but little work has been done in South Australia to understand what the causes and consequences are.
This project tries to fill this gap and improve our understanding about the link between housing and health.
The Housing and Wellbeing Survey
In 2008 we surveyed 1700 South Australians about their housing and wellbeing. In 2013 we are undertaking a second survey called, "The Housing and Wellbeing Survey". Re-connecting with households from 2008 provides an important opportunity to track how household experiences change over time. We would like to know how you and your family are going and follow what has changed over the past 5 years.
Just as in 2008, the 2012/2013 survey asks questions about:
- Your housing quality, cost and if you rent or own your house;
- Your neighbourhood, and the things you need nearby;
- Your health and wellbeing; and
- Your views on how your housing might affect members of your household.
