census-message-logo

This topic has been updated with 2016 Census data for the LGA or other primary area only. What's this?

In the City of Moreland, older couples without children account for 6% of total households in 2016.

Households without Children include couples without children and lone person households. They require different services depending on the age of the people in the households. For example young couples who have not had children (yet) compared to older "empty nester" couples whose children may have left home.

For Households without Children in the City of Moreland, life stage is based on the age of the household reference person (usually person 1 on the Census form):

  • Young: Aged 15-44
  • Middle-aged: Aged 45-64
  • Older: Aged 65 and over

To continue building the story, the City of Moreland's Household data should be viewed in conjunction with Household Size, Age Structure and Dwelling Type.

Derived from the Census question:
