Shire of Moora

Between 2006 and 2011, the LGA with the highest net migration to the Shire of Moora (+17) was from Dandaragan (S), whilst the highest net loss (-61) was to Stirling (C).

Understanding where the Shire of Moora's current residents have moved from helps in predicting future mobility patterns and demographic change. Understanding where the Shire of Moora's residents are moving to indicates areas of population growth and informs possible strategies to retain and attract residents.

Generally, areas of new housing growth attract residents from established areas, especially young couples and families. Coastal communities attract retirees and people seeking a lifestyle change, while inner city areas and areas near universities attract young adults. These are broad demographic trends, while local demographic factors also have a major impact on population movement.

The Shire of Moora's migration data below provides a summary of where current residents lived five years prior to the last Census. The top ten local government areas of population movement are ranked, based on net change - that is, the difference between those who moved in and those who moved out. The areas with the greatest net change (gain or loss) to a particular area may not necessarily be those with the greatest population exchange.

Derived from the Census questions:

'Where does the person usually live?' and 'Where did the person usually live five years ago (at 9 August 2006)'.
