Redland City

Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander profile - Number of bedrooms

Dwellings with 3 bedrooms are the most common for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander households in Redland City.

The Number of Bedrooms in a dwelling is an indicator of the size of dwellings, and when combined with Household Size information, can be an indication of whether there is overcrowding in dwellings, and perhaps housing affordability and availability issues in the indigenous community.

Households are counted as indigenous if they contain one or more indigenous usual residents on Census night. This data presents number of bedrooms in dwellings containing at least one indigenous usual resident. It is entirely possible and even probable in many cases that some bedrooms are occupied by non-indigenous household members.

Derived from the Census question:

'How many bedrooms are there in this dwelling?'
