The Labor party has called on the state government to release human services dashboard data which has not been updated since September.
It is understood data up until September 30, 2019, is being collated by the Department of Communities and the dashboard will be updated later this week.
The human services dashboard was last updated on September 27, 2019, with data from the June 2019 quarter which showed the average wait time for housing for priority applicants was 67 weeks with 3330 applicants on the housing register.
A quarterly housing report released by the government for the September 2019 quarter provided an update on actions within the Affordable Housing Strategy Action Plan 2 (2019 - 2023) but did not provide an update on the housing register.
The state's health dashboard, however, was updated on December 20, 2019, to include data from the September 2019 quarter.

Labor leader Rebecca White said while housing affordability continued to be a massive issue for many Tasmanians the government was refusing to release data it should have released last year.
"We need to understand whether this data has improved or if the government is hiding it because it's in fact got worse," Ms White said.
"This is quarterly data that is usually released in December. It should have been released last year just like the health information was released on time last year."
Housing and Human Services Minister Roger Jaensch said the next human services dashboard data would be published soon.
"The Department of Communities Tasmania releases the data quarterly once it has been compiled and verified for publishing," Mr Jaensch said.
Mr Jaensch said while Labor was fabricating data conspiracies to cover for its own lack of policy, the Hodgman majority Liberal government was getting on with delivering its Affordable Housing Strategy and Action Plan.
"The Tasmanian government is rolling out the benefits of our ground breaking agreement with the Commonwealth to waive Tasmania's housing debt of $157.6 million, noting Labor had 16 years to do this but chose to do nothing," Mr Jaensch said.
"This means there will be 400 additional households getting into accommodation over the next four years under this government than would have been the case under Labor."
