Dwelling type

Access to appropriate housing is critical to wellbeing. In general, a greater concentration of higher density dwellings is likely to attract more young adults and smaller households; while larger, detached or separate dwellings are more likely to have families and prospective families living in them.

Dwelling type statistics in should be viewed in conjunction with Household Size, Household Type, Household Tenure and Age Structure for a more complete picture of access to housing.

The data in these tables is the number of individuals in each dwelling type, rather than the number of households. Household data excludes people temporarily absent from their usual residence on census night.
