Hume City

Net migration by age

The age group with the highest net migration in Hume City is 25-29 year olds, this is forecast to occur in the period between 2016 to 2021.

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

Migration assumptions influenced by:

  • Substantial population gain over the forecast period owing to significant new housing opportunities across the City, especially in the growth areas of Craigieburn, Sunbury, Greenvale, Kalkallo (Cloverton) and Mickleham (Merrifield)
  • Strong attraction of young and established families (0-17 and 20-49 years)
  • Very little net change through migration in oder age groups (55+ years)
