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.

- Attraction of younger families and young couple without children households (most likely looking to buy family type housing in order to start a family) attracted predominantly to newly developed housing in Menangle park and, later in the forecast period, Gilead. Similarly, the large availability of new housing is likely to result in a net growth in most age groups . Although it is expected thart the City will continue to lose empty nester housholds and retirees throuhgout the period (55+ years).
