Central Coast Council area

Non-English speakers - Five year age groups

In 2011, there were 14,602 non-English speakers living in the Central Coast Council area, with largest age group being 40 to 44 year olds.

The Age Structure of the non-English speaking population in the Central Coast Council area 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 Central Coast Council area's non-English speaking Age Structure should be viewed in conjunction with Household Types and Dwelling Types.
