City of Burnside

Non-English speakers - Five year age groups

In 2011, there were 8,039 non-English speakers living in the City of Burnside, with largest age group being 20 to 24 year olds.

The Age Structure of the non-English speaking population in the City of Burnside provides key insights into the level of demand for age based services and facilities such as child care, and language services. Non-English speaking populations may have a quite different age profile to the general population, for instance in a student area, they are likely to be younger, however an area which received a lot of post-war migration may have an older non-English speaking population, and perhaps many second-generation speakers.

Five year age groups present a classic age profile of the population. Each age group covers exactly five years, which enables direct comparison between each group.

To get a more complete picture of the City of Burnside's non-English speaking Age Structure should be viewed in conjunction with Household Types and Dwelling Types.
