census-message-logo

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

In Myrtle Bank, older couples without children account for 16% of total households in 2016.

Households without Children include couples without children and lone person households. They require different services depending on the age of the people in the households. For example young couples who have not had children (yet) compared to older "empty nester" couples whose children may have left home.

For Households without Children in Myrtle Bank, life stage is based on the age of the household reference person (usually person 1 on the Census form):

  • Young: Aged 15-44
  • Middle-aged: Aged 45-64
  • Older: Aged 65 and over

To continue building the story, Myrtle Bank's Household data should be viewed in conjunction with Household Size, Age Structure and Dwelling Type.

Derived from the Census question:

‘What is the person’s relationship (to each other person in the household)?’
