Central Coast Council area

Non-English speakers - Dwelling type

In the Central Coast Council area, 21.6% of non-English speakers were living 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 non-English speaking populations, this topic can look at the differences in the type of housing occupied by different communities within your area. High density housing may provide affordable rental or home ownership opportunities to new migrants, or a particular older community may have lived in an area long term, but changing housing stock could create issues for this community.

Dwelling Type statistics are closely related to the Housing Tenure and Household Type of the non-English speaking communities in Central Coast Council area.

Derived from the Census:
