This topic has been updated with 2016 Census data for all areas. What's this?

Central North District had a similar proportion of pre-schoolers and a higher proportion of persons at post retirement age than the City of Onkaparinga in 2016.

The Age Structure of Central North District provides key insights into the level of demand for age based services and facilities such as child care. It is an indicator of Central North District's residential role and function and how it is likely to change in the future.

Service age groups divide the population into age categories that reflect typical life-stages. They indicate the level of demand for services that target people at different stages in life and how that demand is changing.

Derived from the Census question:

'What is the person's date of birth or age?'
