  • Cost of Living Survey 2022

    This survey consists of 19 questions and should take about 10 minutes to complete. COTA NT uses the results of this survey to provide evidence-based research in its lobbying of government and media. It is very important that as the peak advocacy body for seniors in the Territory that we are aware of how people feel about the cost of living and about being in the Territory as they grow older in relation to financial security.

COTA NT is revisiting its Cost of Living Survey, first completed in 2020 in order to compare the situation two years on. Topics in this survey included: residency in the Northern Territory, demographics, financial security, employment status, employment sector, annual income and highest expense impacting cost of living.

The findings of the 2020 Survey can be accessed here.

In the second issue of Seniors Voice 2022, COTA policy outlining 37 recommendations for the 47th Parliament of Australia included issues around retirement income and housing availability. Two articles focus on the increasing costs of housing in the Northern Territory and a potentially bleak 'couch surfing' future for older women in the Territory particularly.
