City of Maroondah

Overseas born - Dwelling type

In the City of Maroondah 23.0% of overseas born people were in medium or high density dwellings.

Dwelling Type is an important determinant of the City of Maroondah's residential role and function. A greater concentration of higher density dwellings may attract young people and more residents born in particular countries where high density housing is more prevalent.

For overseas-born populations, this topic can look at the differences in the type of housing occupied by different communities within your area. High density housing may provide affordable rental or home ownership opportunities to new migrants, or a particular older community may have lived in an area long term, but changing housing stock could create issues for this community.

Dwelling Type statistics are closely related to the Age Structure and Household Types of the overseas-born communities in City of Maroondah, and should be looked at in conjunction with these topics.

Derived from the Census:

'Dwelling Type is derived from an assessment by the Census Collector who observes and records the type of dwelling structure.'
