National Shelter, Community Sector Banking and SGS Economics and Planning have developed the first Rental Affordability Index (RAI). The RAI examines rental affordability for all renting households in each state of Australia, and will be produced quarterly. The RAI examines affordability trends in the rental market, with a particular focus on low income households and shows a growing number of households are being left with very little disposable income after paying for rent.
