Families living in apartments continue to grow
July 28, 2017
National Company ID released results from the 2016 Census data which shows there are 228,243 families with children (with one or two parents) living in flats, units or apartments. This equates to 6.3% of family households. But as a proportion of apartment dwellers, families make up almost 20%, or 1 in 5.
So has this rate increased since 2011? Between 2011 and 2016 there was an increase of 21,147 families living in apartments. This is a 10.2% increase. However, this rate of increase is much lower than the growth that occurred between 2006 and 2011 – 23.2%! When looking at the share of family households, the share living in apartments has barely increased between 2011 and 2016 – 6.1% to 6.3%.
