City of Maroondah

Life-stages - Household type

In the City of Maroondah, 89.3% of children aged 0 to 4 years were in couples with children households.

The City of Maroondah'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?

To continue building the story, the City of Maroondah's Household Types should be viewed in conjunction with Dwelling Type.

Derived from the Census question:

‘What is the person’s relationship (to each other person in the household)?’
