ACT Strata Data & Statistics – May 2018

The first comprehensive national report of the strata and community title sector reveals there are about 2.6 million strata title lots in Australia with an insured value of $995 billion.

The document, the Australian National Strata Data Report, highlights the economic value of the sector to the national economy and will be an invaluable tool for policy makers deciding the framework in which the strata industry operates, the report’s creators say.

Strata properties play a central role in the delivery of housing and in urban governance. They are crucial to the future of our cities. Yet there have been no reliable national figures collated or published in Australia on the number of strata schemes (plans) and lots (units), the number of people employed in the strata management industry, or the estimated value of property owned under strata title.

This project, supported by Strata Community Association who are the peak body for the strata industry in Australia, provides the first comprehensive national picture of the strata industry. The national (and state and territory) information sheets provide information on the number of strata properties, their value, the demographic characteristics of their residents, and the professionals employed to serve them. The accompanying report provides detail on the data collection methodology.
