Central Coast Council area

Recent arrivals - Dwelling type

In the Central Coast Council area, 27.5% of recent arrivals were in medium or high density dwellings.

Dwelling Type is an important determinant of the Central Coast Council area's residential role and function. A greater concentration of higher density dwellings may attract young people and more residents born in particular countries where high density housing is more prevalent.

For recent arrivals, the type of dwelling can indicate the role and function of the area in providing housing to migrants. High density housing may provide affordable rental or home ownership opportunities to new migrants, while family units in Australia are more likely to seek out separate housing. However, this trend is changing as well, so viewing the change over time information for this topic can indicate where the growth is among migrants in the area.

Dwelling Type statistics should be viewed in conjunction with Household Size, Household Type, Housing Tenure and Age Structure for a more complete picture of the housing market for recent arrivals in Central Coast Council area.

Derived from the Census:

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