AURIN CASE STUDIES
Housing Affordability and Housing Stress
Housing affordability in Australia has become a critical concern for young would-be homeowners and policy-makers alike. It has been the focus of a large body of research in Australia, and as house prices increase rapidly, has increasingly become a contentious political concern.
Emergency Department Admissions
The rate per capita of preventable paediatric presentations to hospital emergency departments (EDs) has risen steeply over the past 12 years, resulting in significant policy and resourcing implications, in Melbourne, Australia and overseas. Why do parents choose to do this?
Teaching Urban Analysis
Urban Planning Research is an undergraduate course delivered to planning students at RMIT University. It is designed to develop an in-depth understanding of applied social research skills specific to the discipline of urban planning, in a way that makes the GIS component of planning accessible and intuitive.
