TYPES OF DWELLINGS
10.1 Capital city households, By dwelling structure - 2007-08
Separate houses are generally larger and have more bedrooms than other dwelling types. Typically, separate houses have three or four bedrooms; semi-detached houses have two or three bedrooms; and flats, units or apartments have one or two bedrooms.
The three-bedroom house is by far the most common type of dwelling in Australia. In 2007-08, 41% of all households were living in separate houses with three bedrooms, while a further 28% were living in houses with four or more bedrooms (table 10.2). In total, 76% of households were living in dwellings (mainly houses) with three or more bedrooms; 20% were living in two-bedroom dwellings (houses, row or terrace houses, townhouses, flats, units or apartments); and 4% were living in one-bedroom dwellings (mainly flats, units or apartments).
