census-message-logo

This topic has been updated with 2016 Census data for all areas. What's this?

[UnpaidChildcare].[Sum_OwnOthers].{0:#,0;-#,0;'No'} people in Pearcedale provided unpaid care for children other than their own in 2016.

The role of unpaid childcare in Pearcedale is determined by many different factors. For example areas with high levels of unpaid child care may have a dominance of single income families with one significant earner, or there could be a lack of provision of paid child care in the area. The level to which people care for others children can also indicate the role of extended family (eg. grandparents caring for grandchildren, family day care).

The role of unpaid child care is a complex one so this topic should be viewed in conjunction with several others, including Household Type, Employment, Household Income and Educational Attendance.

Derived from the Census question:

'In the last two weeks did the person spend time looking after a child, without pay?', which specifically asks respondents to differentiate between caring for their own children and caring for others children.

Persons aged 15 years and over.
