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

Migration assumptions influenced by:

  • New housing opportunities across the City, especially in new development areas, which are expected to attract predominantly young couples and families, while the areas of Alkimos, Eglinton Yanchep and Two Rocks are expected to attract a broader market (empty-nesters and retirees as well as families)
  • The maturing of established areas in the south of the City (Girrawheen, Koondoola, Marangaroo and Alexander Heights) means that some loss of young adults leaving home is expected
  • Strong migration gain to the City of Wanneroo is expected to be strong across the 2011-2026 period
