The purpose of the Renting in Victoria Snapshot 2021 (the Snapshot) is to help improve general knowledge about renting in Victoria and to correct some of the misconceptions that exist about the scale and nature of renting. It can also assist policy makers and service providers. 
The Snapshot once again provides summary data about what is happening in the Victorian rental sector, utilising available data sets from the Australian Census, the Residential Tenancies Bond Authority, and the main organisations renters turn to for assistance such as Tenants Victoria, Consumer Affairs Victoria, the Victorian Civil and Administrative Tribunal, welfare agencies and community legal services.  
This year’s Snapshot begins to tell the story of how the COVID-19 (coronavirus) pandemic has impacted the lives of Victorians by showcasing data relating to people moving to different living situations such as with family members, reductions in migrant and international student populations, income fluctuations, and various types of government intervention in order to support renters through the crisis.
