South Australia’s Strategic Plan is comprised of 100 targets. These targets are specific and measurable and enable us to measure our progress towards achieving the Plan’s visions and goals.

Each target is reported on through this section of the website. Data is analysed and uploaded as it becomes available.

Target:

9. Aboriginal housing:

Reduce overcrowding in Aboriginal households by 10% by 2014



Key Measure

 

Explanatory Comments

Since the publication of the 2012 Progress Report updated data for this target’s key measure is not available, as at 15 April 2016. Updated data will be published when it is available.  The data above and the comments below are from the 2012 Progress Report. 

In 2002 (the baseline year), 1,344 Aboriginal households were overcrowded in South Australia. By 2008, this had decreased to 1,212.

Progress against Target 9 was previously measured using the Proxy Occupancy Standard, but was changed to the Canadian National Occupancy Standard (CNOS) in July 2012 to align with the National Affordable Housing Agreement (NAHA) Performance Indicators Report. The NAHA overcrowding performance indicator is the ‘Proportion of Indigenous households living in overcrowded conditions including remote and discrete communities’, with the benchmark being a 20% reduction nationally in the proportion of Indigenous households living in overcrowded conditions from 2008 to 2017-18.

The data for Target 9 is publicly available in the Council of Australian Governments Report on Performance 2016 (March 2016) and was sourced from the ABS National Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Social Survey 2008 (unpublished) and the Australian Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Health Survey 2012-13.  Data on the proportion of Indigenous households living in overcrowded conditions using the CNOS is not available prior to 2008.
