COTA National Survey Gives Poor Report Card for Wellbeing of Older Renters
A Federation of state COTAs has produced a report called State of the (Older) Nation Report. COTA, with Newgate Research, conducted a nationally-representative online survey lasting 25 minutes on average, completed by 2,562 Australians aged 50 and over, with quotas set for state and territory, metropolitan and regional areas, gender and age. The report is a summary of the information gathered. There seems to be a significant poverty gap – with people renting and experiencing financial hardship doing poorly on a range of indicators. The whole report is available at the link below, but HAAG has created a summary of the responses for older renters.
