Coffs Harbour City

Net migration by age

The age group with the highest net migration in Coffs Harbour City is 0-4 year olds, this is forecast to occur in the period between 2026 to 2031.

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 Coffs Harbour City depending on their housing markets and stage in the suburb life cycle.

Major migration assumptions:

  • A range of new housing opportunities across the Council area, which are expected to predominantly attract young and mature families as well as retirees and empty-nesters
  • Loss of young adults, many of whom are leaving the family home after completing secondary education
