The Australian tenure datasets supplied by eSpatial where obtained from the Australian Bureau of Statistics 2011 Australian Census. The Australian tenure datasets provided by eSpatial can be used to examine and analyse the types of residential housing use across Australia. These datasets can be used in conjunction with the eSpatial mapping software to create reports which investigate the occupancy status of housing units within Australia. Reports can be generated on this topic at the Australian State, State Electoral Division and Local Government Area geographical levels. You can also link and connect your own personal or commercial data to these datasets. Residential property usage across Australia can also therefore be analysed in relation to your own data. Below is an example of a simple Australian tenure report. This report was designed by eSpatial to illustrate how to get the most out of the eSpatial mapping software and the data it provides.
A simple report was created using the eSpatial mapping software and the Tenure (Australian States) dataset it provides. This report examines residential property usage across Australia. The Australia tenure datasets provided by eSpatial offer a number of different residential tenure categories which can be reported on but for the purpose of this report owned with a mortgage, privately rented and socially rented housing units were chosen as an example.
Australian states are colored and categorized according to the number of owned housing units with a mortgage within them. The graduated color scheme adopted by eSpatial mapping software allows for a quick and easy analysis of this data. It is evident from the map that yellow colored states (e.g. Northern Territory) have the lowest number of owned housing units with a mortgage, less than 50,000 while red colored counties (e.g. New South Wales) have the highest number of this household type with more than 550,000 of this type of housing unit. It is also therefore easy to surmise that the number of owned housing units with a mortgage in the light orange (e.g. Tasmania), orange (e.g. South Australia) and dark orange (e.g. Queensland) colored states lies somewhere between 50,000 and 550,000 residences respectively.
Firstly the topic reflected in the map can be changed quickly and easily simply by selecting the map this field option. Once this option has been selected the map will change to reflect the values in this topic (e.g. select the map this field option on Rented from real estate agent to see these values mapped in relation to Australia). Secondly the report can be sorted in ascending or descending order. This is useful when trying to decipher quickly which areas have the highest/lowest values (e.g. select sort descending on % Rented from state/territory housing authority to see which state has the highest proportion of socially rented residences). Finally the report can also be filtered by specific values. This is useful when trying to quickly search for areas with specific values (e.g. select filter results on owned with a mortgage so that states with between 500,000 and 800,000 of this household type are only displayed on the map).
