The City of Joondalup's household and family structure is one of the most important demographic indicators.

People form different types of households at different stages in life, so this varies enormously by age group in all areas. This topic is useful, however, in comparing the types of households formed by each age group relative to the benchmark. For instance, in some areas, children may mostly live in couple families, while in others they are mainly in one-parent families. Are elderly parents still living with their extended family or do they have empty nester households?
