Central Coast Council area

Recent arrivals - Housing tenure

In the Central Coast Council area 49.6% of recent arrivals were in households who were purchasing or fully owned their home, 49.8% were renting privately, and 0.0% were in social housing in 2011.

The Central Coast Council area's Housing Tenure data provides insights into its socio-economic status as well as the role it plays in the housing market. For recent arrivals, housing tenure shows how migrants are accommodated in the area. In areas receiving many refugees, public housing may be an important housing type. For skilled arrivals in the country on a temporary basis, the private rental market is the main provider. Some areas provide purpose-built student rental accommodation, while other areas may represent home ownership and mortgage opportunities for arrivals looking to settle with their families on a long-term basis.

To build a more complete picture of the story of the area for recent arrivals, tenure data should be viewed in conjunction with Dwelling Type, Household Income and Age Structure data.

Derived from the Census questions:

'Is this dwelling (owned outright, owned with a mortgage etc.)', and 'If this dwelling is being rented, who is it rented from?'

People born overseas and arriving in Australia between 2006 and 9 Aug 2011, counted in private dwellings
