The trends of Docklands’ households

30 Mar 2017

According to the City of Melbourne’s data, there will be more lone-person and family households in Docklands in the near future.

The number of one-person homes is predicted to more than double in the next 10 years, increasing from 3543 in 2016 to 7690 in 2026.

Households where couples live with their children in Docklands will also double, rising from 469 in 2016 to 1079 in 2026.

Lone-person households currently make up 51.7 per cent of all homes in Docklands, while families make up 16.4 per cent. Homes of couples without children constitute 22 per cent of the total households.

By 2026, 17.4 per cent of Docklands residents are expected to be living with their families and 52.6 per cent living alone.

Approximately 10 per cent of the total Docklands population live in shared group dwellings and the percentage is set to reduce to 7.9 in 10 years.

The number of residents per dwelling is estimated to drop from 1.55 to 1.48 – but is expected to increase to 1.61 in the long term.

The total population is set to soar from the estimated current 11,324 to 21,091 in 2026.
