Net migration by age

The age group with the highest net migration in City of Maribyrnong is 20-24 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 City of Maribyrnong depending on their housing markets and stage in the suburb life cycle.

Migration assumptions influenced by:

  • New housing opportunities, through the redevelopment of existing brownfield sites and higher densities within centres in Maribyrnong, Footscray, Maidstone, Yarraville and Braybrook, are expected to attract young singles, couples and some families
  • Gain of tertiary students in their late teens and early twenties (attracted to Victoria University)
  • The type of future development expected (predominantly smaller higher density dwellings), affordability and market preference means that some loss of young and established families is expected from most areas of City of Maribyrnong
  • Little change through migration expected in age groups 50 years and over
