The Rental Affordability Index (RAI) has been created by National Shelter, Community Sector Banking and SGS Economics & Planning, which undertook the research. The quarterly Index gives an account of rental affordability in Australia's capital cities. The November 2016 RAI provides an update of the June 2016 RAI report by providing analysis of data from the two most recent available quarters, March and June 2016.
