Cost of Living

Progress Tracker: Complete


This research project was designed to better inform the conversation around the rising cost of living that was experienced in Perth and other Australian cities. The seven part series was published between June 2013 and June 2014.

As part of this series we explored:

  • Can commuting impact on your health?
  • What is your commute costing you?
  • Have transport costs fulled congestion in Perth?
  • Soaring rents fuel household stress
  • Eating out in Perth - are we paying too much?
  • Information Technology - why do Australians pay more?
  • The growing cost of life in Perth
