The residential development sector is a significant driver of the Victorian economy.

In 2016-17 the construction of new dwellings made a contribution to the Victorian economy of more than $20 billion.

This contribution is expected to have increased to over $22.9 billion in 2017-18. This does not include the contribution that the sector makes to the Victorian Government's own source tax collections.

The sector sustained over 162,000 jobs in Victoria in 2016-17.



The RDI measures the health of Victoria’s residential development industry on an ongoing basis.

The research examines the dynamics impacting the industry, including economic conditions, population growth, development activity, trend data, regulatory changes and policy implications. These industry activity fundamentals inform the RDI, which determines whether the industry is operating in a strong, moderate or weak market, relative to recent and long history.


Thank you to the research team at EY for working with UDIA to develop the Residential Development Index, which fills a critical gap in the data and information available to the industry on how we’re tracking and what to watch out for moving forward.
