City of Burnside

Non-English speakers - Number of bedrooms per dwelling

In 2011, non-English speakers were most commonly found in dwellings with 3 bedrooms in the City of Burnside.

The Number of Bedrooms in a dwelling is an indicator of the size of dwellings, and when combined with Dwelling Type information, provides insight into the role the City of Burnside plays in the housing market for non-English speaking populations.

For example, where non-English speaking populations are mainly students, one bedroom and bedsitters may be dominant. Upgrader areas housing families could have larger separate dwellings, while smaller units may be common for downsizers among older migrant communities.

To the extent that there may be a mismatch between bedrooms and Household Size, this topic can also look at the potential for overcrowding in particular communities, or the availability of extra bedrooms.

Derived from the Census question:

'How many bedrooms are there in this dwelling?'

People speaking a language other than English at home, counted in private dwellings
