Hutt City

Net migration by age

The age group with the highest net migration in Hutt City is 30-34 year olds, this is forecast to occur in the period between 2023 to 2028.

Migration is one of the most important components of population change. Once you have established the amount of development activity in an area, the next step is to make assumptions about who will move into the area as well as who is leaving the area.

Net migration by age is an excellent way of understanding housing markets. The most mobile age groups in the population are young adults. They tend to move to attend educational institutions, seek work and express a change in lifestyle. Market research has shown that empty nesters are more likely to move to smaller accommodation when appropriate and affordable alternative housing is supplied in the local area that is accessible to established social networks.

Select each small area to see how migration patterns differ for each area across Hutt City depending on their housing markets and stage in the suburb life cycle.

Major migration assumptions:

  • Relatively stable migration profile throughout the forecast period
  • Gain of adults aged 25-44 years old with children aged 0-4 years
  • Loss of young adults aged 18-24 who leave Hutt City for education and employment purposes elsewhere
  • Some loss of mature adults, empty nesters, early retirees and retirees aged 45-69 years old who may be downsizing their housing options or selling housing in Hutt City and searching for housing opportunities elsewhere
  • Net gains of frail elderly adults aged 85+ years who may be migrating to Hutt City in order to be closer to hospital, healthcare and aged care facility options
