Who lives in apartments?

A recent study conducted by NSW Land Registry Services shows that in NSW alone 15% of the population live in an apartment. That’s 1,129,464 out of 7,564,945 people.

The following are some interesting insights into the report:

  • 40% of all people living in apartments in NSW were born in Australia, with 13% coming from either China or India and the remaining coming from other countries.
  • The main type of household in this category is a lone person at 31%, with couples that have no children making up 25%. 
  • Almost half (48%) of all people living in an apartment are aged between 20-39 years old.
