Hillside

Net migration by age

The age group with the highest net migration in Hillside is 10-14 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 City of Melton depending on their housing markets and stage in the suburb life cycle.

Major migration assumptions:

  • Slight gain of couples, young and established families (30-39 years with children aged 0-14 years) particularly in the early period with continuing growth in residential development
  • As the relatively new suburb reaches ultimate buildout capacity, there is a period of lower gains of people aged 29-39 after 2021 and losses in most other age groups during the same period
  • Loss of mature adults, empty-nesters, early retirees and retirees (40-69 years) after 2016 seeking residential opportunities and lifestyle options elsewhere and elements of suburban regeneration beginning in the later years of the forecast
