Home ownership is a cornerstone of the Australian Dream... but how many people have actually realised it?
This FACT indicates the percentage of privately outright owned homes within each Australian city. These figures have been sorted from high to low, since owning one's own home is considered a financial asset. Across Australia, around one third (31.0 percent) of occupied dwellings are privately owned outright. Statistics from the 2016 ABS Census show that the city with the highest percentage is Hobart, at 32.9 percent. The city with the lowest is Darwin at 16.7 percent.
