Project Summary

This Research Project aims to address Issue 1 of Australian Housing and Urban Research Institute’s (AHURI) housing supply research brief: What is the impact on supply and affordability from implementation of the Henry Review recommendations in relation to negative gearing, land tax and stamp duty? The primary method will be policy simulation techniques applied to the Household, Income and Labour Dynamics in Australia (HILDA) Survey and a Victorian dataset that links the Valuer-General’s property sales transaction records in 2006 to Valuation data containing details of the property characteristics including land size.
