Perth Metropolitan Area

Single year of age

census-message-logo

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

There were 962,945 males and 979,579 females in the Perth Metropolitan Area in 2016.

The Age Structure of the Perth Metropolitan Area provides key insights into the level of demand for age based services and facilities. It is also an indicator of the Perth Metropolitan Area's demographic role and function and how it is likely to change in the future.

Single year of age data is presented as an age-sex pyramid which enables the shape of the population to be compared geographically, temporally and by gender. For example, longer female life expectancy usually leads to the pyramid skewing to the right in the older age groups.

To get a more complete picture the Perth Metropolitan Area's Age Structure should be viewed in conjunction with Household Types and Dwelling Types.

Derived from the Census question:

'What is the person's date of birth (or age last birthday)?'
