Queensland Rental Vulnerability Index


Tenants Queensland and UNSW City Futures Research Centre


This project was commissioned by Tenants Queensland to help plan the delivery of tenant advice services by the Queensland Statewide Tenant Advice and Referral Service (QSTARS).

The project defines ‘rental vulnerability’ as the vulnerability of persons to problems that may make their rental housing unaffordable, insecure or inappropriate, and which therefore indicates a need for tenant advice.

Thirteen indicators of rental vulnerability are identified, in two broad groups: ‘housing indicators’ and ‘people indicators’.

All the indicators were subject to a principal component analysis to create the rental vulnerability index (RVI). Each of the indicators is also mapped separately.

The analysis of the data and mapping was undertaken and produced by Laurence Troy and Chris Martin, City Futures Research Centre.

The QSTARS programs is managed by Tenants Queensland and funded by the Queensland Department of Housing and Public Works.

Funding for the project was provided by the Queensland Government.
