City of Darwin

Life-stages - Introduction

In 2011, there were 4,875 people aged 0 to 4 years living in City of Darwin.

Children aged 0-4 (infants and pre-school age) are a very important population group as they represent the next generation. This group are large consumers of local government services, such as maternal and child health services, child care and libraries. Living conditions in the formative years of life are very important indicators of future life outcomes, so this group is often of particular interest to local government.

Derived from the Census question:

'What is the person's date of birth or age?'

Children aged 0 to 4 years
