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

In North Parramatta there were 1,039 carers providing unpaid assistance to a person with a disability, long term illness or old age in 2016.

The proportion of people providing unpaid care for the aged and disabled in North Parramatta can be an important indicator of the level of demand for aged care services and facilities by local and state governments. An increasing proportion of carers among the population may indicate inadequate aged care provision, or the need for in-home support, or support for the carers themselves. The level of care provided by individuals is likely to be affected by Household Income, Age Structure and the ethnic makeup of the community (Language Spoken), as well as the sense of community cohesiveness.

Derived from the Census question:

'In the last two weeks did the person spend time providing unpaid care, help or assistance to family members or others because of a disability, a long term illness or problems related to old age?'.

Persons aged 15 years and over.
