Tamworth Regional Council

Number of bedrooms per dwelling

Dwellings with 3 bedrooms were the most common in Tamworth Regional Council in 2011.

The Number of Bedrooms in a dwelling is an indicator of the size of dwellings, and when combined with Dwelling Type information, provides insight into the role Tamworth Regional Council plays in the housing market. For example, an area of high density dwellings that are predominantly 1-2 bedroom are likely to attract students, single workers and young couples, whereas a high density area with dwellings that are predominantly 2-3 bedroom may attract more empty nesters and some families.

In combination with Household Type and Household Size, the Number of Bedrooms can also indicate issues around housing affordability, overcrowding and other socio-economic factors.

Derived from the Census question:

'How many bedrooms are there in this dwelling?'
