Padstow Stats In A Nutshell

The 2011 Census Survey results were released recently and we thought it would be an interesting exercise to take a look at each of our suburbs’ stats in a nutshell. We’ll start with Padstow and work our way through to Picnic Point, with a suburb a week. It’ll be interesting to see the differences in some of the major stats published by the Australian Bureau of Statistics from 2006 to 2011.

Padstow (SSC) Now – 2011 Then – 2006
Number of People 12,717 11,713
Number of Males 6,219 5,747
Number of Females 6,498 5,966
Median Age 39 38
Number of Families 3,485 3,176
Number of Private Dwellings 4,823 4,498
Average Number of People per Household 2.7 2.7
Median Weekly Household Income $1,272 $1,076
Median Monthly Mortgage Repayments $2,167 $1,733
Median Weekly Rent $330 $250
Average Number of Motor Vehicles per Dwelling 1.6 0.9

 

Whilst Padstow’s seen some population growth, it certainly hasn’t boomed in the 5 year period, which isn’t surprising given that there’s limited housing development in the Padstow suburb area with only 325 more dwellings than in 2006. The statistic that probably stands out the most would be that the median weekly household income has increased by just under 18% whereas median monthly mortgage repayments have increased by just over 25%, backing up reports of mortgage stress amongst many Australian households.

Next week we’re going to take a look at Padstow Heights stats to see how the suburb has changed between the 2006 and 2011 census reports.
