Central Coast Council area

Non-English speakers - Housing tenure

In the Central Coast Council area, 69.1% of non-English speakers were in households who were purchasing or fully owned their home, 25.0% were renting privately, and 2.0% 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 non-English speaking populations, housing tenure shows how migrants are accommodated in the area. This is highly correlated with the age of migrant communities - older communities are likely to have more home ownership. In some areas, public housing is an important tenure type for migrants, even long established communities.

To build a more complete picture of the story of the area for the non-English speaking population, Housing 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 speaking a language other than English at home, counted in private dwellings
