    Very interesting! I didn’t realise how significant the drop in fertility was in the 1970s.

    Great article Glenn 🙂 Fascinating statistics. I thought one of the other reasons for the 25-34 age group leaving City of Whitehorse may have been that they leave the family home and move to more trendier suburbs into share accommodation?

    • Glenn says:

      Hi Naomi – there is that too in Whitehorse which has a double whammy with suburbs such as Vermont South having lots of home leavers going outwards to more affordable housing or inwards to trendy rentals.This compounds the birth rate issue – but Whitehorse also gets lots of young migrants (particularly Chinese) to offset this.

    So it’s a myth that they are aren’t completing their Census form!
