The 2010-11 SOR analyses the issues surrounding housing supply and how these issues have impacted both on the SOR zones and the 65 SOR regions themselves. Supply issues lead to pricing pressures and these impacts are described in their zone and regional context. Construction activity across the zone types and regions is presented.
The 2010-11 SOR also examines the fortunes of households in terms of wealth and employment across both the SOR regions and zone types.
The strategic purpose of the SOR report is to provide local government with a system of measuring performance and a framework for future regional economic development strategies.
