Migration is one of the most important components of population change. Once you have established the amount of development activity in an area, the next step is to make assumptions about who will move into the area as well as who is leaving the area.

Net migration by age is an excellent way of understanding housing markets. The most mobile age groups in the population are young adults. They tend to move to attend educational institutions, seek work and express a change in lifestyle. Market research has shown that empty nesters are more likely to move to smaller accommodation when appropriate and affordable alternative housing is supplied in the local area that is accessible to established social networks.

Select each small area to see how migration patterns differ for each area across City of Brimbank depending on their housing markets and stage in the suburb life cycle.

Major migration assumptions:

  • Generally similar migration profile In the 2016-2026 period with net gain in young adults
  • Large loss of young families with children aged in their early 30s with children aged 0-4 years migrating out of the area, likely in search of more affordable housing options in nearby LGAs
  • Loss of adults in their early 30s, empty nesters and retirees (45-64 years)
  • Low levels of loss through migration in ages 65 and above
