City of Burnside

Life-stages - Dwelling type

In the City of Burnside 17.0% of children aged 0 to 4 years were in medium or high density dwellings.

Dwelling Type is an important determinant of the City of Burnside's residential role and function. People occupy different dwelling structures at different life stages, so not only can dwelling type give the overall role and function of the area, it can show the role it plays for different age groups.

For instance, an area may have minimal high density housing stock, but that which there is, is mainly occupied by students aged 18-24. On the other hand, medium density may be an important housing stock for the elderly to downsize into - but are they taking this up? Are families living increasingly in high density housing while retired populations occupy separate houses?

Derived from the Census:

'Dwelling Structure is derived from the ABS address register supplemented with information from Census Field Officers.'
