City of Maroondah

Life-stages - Housing tenure

In the City of Maroondah 73.6% of children aged 0 to 4 years were in households who were purchasing or fully owned their home, 23.0% were renting privately, and 1.3% were in social housing in 2011.

The City of Maroondah's Housing Tenure data provides insights into its socio-economic status as well as the role it plays in the housing market.

Looking at tenure for specific age groups provides additional information about the housing role and function, which may be quite different for different life stages. For instance, an inner city area may house predominantly young people, while the elderly are concentrated in public housing. Alternatively, the older population may overwhelmingly own their homes outright, while younger generations are renting due to lack of affordability.

In conjunction with other socio-economic status indicators in the City of Maroondah, Tenure data is useful for analysing housing markets, housing affordability and identifying public housing areas. It should be looked at alongside Household Type and Dwelling Type.

It is also worth remembering that because this table counts individuals, there is no assumption that any particular individual pays the rent or mortgage.

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?'

Children aged 0 to 4 years, counted in private dwellings
