The Australian Housing Data Analytics Platform

The Australian Housing Data Analytics Platform (AHDAP) will provide a unique federated platform for the ingestion and management of digital data on housing and the built environment. This platform and its suite of tools will allow rapid multi-scale complex modelling and simulation to address the pressing questions regarding housing provision and sustainability across Australia.

By implementing a common, extensible data model to facilitate the consolidation of Australian housing data, the AHDAP will facilitate research into areas such as housing supply, affordability and diversity, supporting policy decisions that are fair, data-driven, and accurate. The AHDAP will provide researchers and planners with a transformative capability to objectively design and evaluate new policy and practice with regards to the future development of Australia’s urban conurbations, assisting in the driving of economic recovery, social inclusion and resilience across Australia’s $7 trillion housing market.

This project brings together key Federal agencies responsible for researching and monitoring national housing and planning policy, a collaboration that will deliver a sustainable national governance model for Australia’s digital housing assets and provide researchers and policymakers with a prioritised set of nationally harmonised housing data.
