'Youthification' & Greater Western Sydney: The Internal Migration of Young People

'Youthification' & Greater Western Sydney: The Internal Migration of Young People

If you live in Greater Western Sydney (GWS), you may have noticed a trend of local young people moving away from GWS to live closer to the Sydney CBD. Such a relocation of young people to urban areas is known as 'youthification'. In this study by Westir, data from the 2016 Australian Census of Population and Housing is utilised to explore the extent to which GWS was 'youthified' between 2011 and 2016. Using internal migration data for people aged between 20 and 34 years in 2016, this study also assesses how the movements of young GWS residents have shaped youthification in the Greater Sydney region.
