Recent evidence suggests households exposed to unaffordable housing include children, young people and their families. We know remarkably little, however, about the magnitude of this problem, and are only beginning to understand some of the ways these trends affect the childhoods and teen years of Australia’s children, their likely impact on children’s futures.

This report is one of the first of its type in Australia. Focusing on national change over time in children’s housing experience, as well as a more detailed investigation of how these changes have manifested spatially in the state of Victoria, the report presents evidence about numbers of children and young people affected by affordability disadvantage in Australia’s fastest housing tenure: private rental.
