Data Quality
The number of overcrowded households is calculated based on the 'Rooms and people per household' data downloaded from ABS table builder using the two variables: Number of Bedrooms in Private Dwellings (ranges) (BEDRD) and Number of Persons Usually Residents in Dwellings (NPRD) (https://www.censusdata.abs.gov.au/webapi/jsf/tableView/customiseTable.xhtml) Occupied private dwellings data' is sourced from ABS Table Builder: 2011 Census of Population and Housing : 2011 Census - Dwelling Characteristic : Dwelling Type (DWTD) variable. The definition of the 'overcrowded households' applied here is: " if 'number of residents/number of bedrooms > 2' then the household is overcrowded". Here, the stats regarding overcrowded households is calculated for houses with up to 3 bedrooms only. For 8 or more residents in a household, ABS gives a category '8 or more persons' instead of giving the specific number of residents per household and thus, the extract number of overcrowded households could not be established.
