  • Public housing in the Auckland region. – This dataset measures public housing stock in Auckland and the number of applicants who are eligible for public housing and are on the public housing waiting list. This dataset is managed and distributed quarterly by the Ministry of Housing and Urban Development. The next update is expected in October 2019.
