This paper uses unit record data from Journeys Home: Longitudinal Study of Factors Affecting Housing Stability (Journeys Home). The study was initiated and is funded by the Australian Government Department of Social Services (DSS). The Department of Employment has provided information for use in Journeys Home and it is managed by the Melbourne Institute of Applied Economic and Social Research (Melbourne Institute). The findings and views reported in this paper, however, are those of the authors and should not be attributed to DSS, the Department of Employment or the Melbourne Institute. The authors would also like to thank Dan O'Flaherty, Dave Ribar, Steve Stillman, the two anonymous referees and seminar participants at Humboldt University and the University of Melbourne for useful comments on earlier drafts.
