Access information and data with the Housing Evidence Centre on the NSW Planning Portal.
Accessing, using and collecting housing data and evidence is essential for NSW Government agencies, local government, industry, and non-government organisations, as it drives housing programs, investment, and service delivery.
Open access to data is also important for accountability and transparency to the community. Data and evidence based decisions supports targeted policy and programs, complex problem-solving, monitoring, evaluating, forecasting and identifying future needs.
The Housing Evidence Centre demonstrates some of the ways that the department uses data to guide its work in creating improved housing outcomes for the people of NSW.
