A quick peek at rental bonds data

The Residential Tenancy Authority rental data includes historical numbers on rental bonds. Have always wanted to look into this more deeply but a very quick look on a 5 year perspective of total rental bonds lodged for the northern tropical cities:

2012 2017 Growth
Cairns Regional Council 22668 23871 5.3%
Townsville City Council 20409 24165 18.4%
Mackay Regional Council 9768 12443 27.4%

Total bonds lodged includes some minor sectors where reporting may have changed. This has also been adjusted for Douglas de-amalgamation. Something doesn’t look right so hope I haven’t got something wrong.
