This study will track 500 new tenancies over a three year period. It will be one of the largest longitudinal panel studies of new social housing tenants in Australia. A focus on new tenants will provide unique insights into how factors including neighbours and neighbourhoods, housing design, tenure, and tenure mix, as well as biographical characteristics drive (or perhaps hinder) tenancy sustainment, satisfaction and community and economic participation over time.
