Commonwealth Rent Assistance (CRA) provides supplementary income to about one million income support recipients in the private rental market in recognition of the additional costs of private rental housing. The primary aim of the research reported in this final report is to assess the targeting performance of CRA at a regional level. The premise is that national CRA entitlement rules and regional variations in rent result in varied regional outcomes in terms of the extent to which CRA recognises the additional costs faced by those income support recipients who are renting privately. The required dataset was created using the techniques of spatial microsimulation to combine data from different sources and to apply a microsimulation model to this dataset.
