12 Aug 2008
Description

This positioning paper provides a context for examining housing market dynamics in four Australian resource boom towns: Kalgoorlie and Karratha in Western Australia, and Emerald and Moranbah in Queensland. The impact of the resource boom on housing affordability is examined, as are its effects on a variety of other related socio-economic indicators in those towns, including the availability and appropriateness of housing, community development, social cohesion and exclusion.
