The 2021 Census counted 1.0 million dwellings across WA.
It showed that 79.7% of people live in separate houses rather than flats or apartments. This was a slight increase from 79.1% in 2016. Over this time the proportion of people who lived in flats or apartments also increased from 5.7% to 6.5%. The data also revealed that 29.2% of people own their home outright, 40% with a mortgage and 27.4% rent.
So Bec and Jeziel wanted to double check these stats by asking listeners do you own your home outright, with a mortgage or do you rent? They were surprised by the results. According to the family 40% own their own outright, 29% with a mortgage and 30% rent.
