Liverpool City

Net migration by age

The age group with the highest net migration in Liverpool City is 25-29 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 Liverpool City depending on their housing markets and stage in the suburb life cycle.

Migration assumptions influenced by:

  • There has been significant growth over recent years in the City’s greenfield sites, and this is expected to continue with the development of new housing in Austral is expected to attract predominantly young couples and families (0-9 and 25-34 years)
  • Gain in young adults (18-24 years) in the more urban areas of the City, particularly Liverpool and Warwick Farm (both suburbs having higher density apartments and a mix of housing types)
  • Loss of empty nesters and retirees (55-69 years), accessing lifestyle options elsewhere
  • Little change through net-migration in older persons (70+ years) over time; the gain in persons aged 85+ is mostly attributable to people accessing aged care facilities or assisted living accommodation within the City.
