Net migration by age

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 Yass Valley Council area depending on their housing markets and stage in the suburb life cycle.

Major migration assumptions:

  • Demand for rural, semi-rural and small town living within commuting distance of Canberra
  • Significant gain of families with children aged 0-14 years
  • Minor loss of retirees and other older adults (65-79 years)
  • Like many parts of regional Australia, out-migration of young adults (18-24 years) seeking education and employment opportunities elsewhere.
