Moreland City Council Says...

The increase in 2018/19 (+2.74%) is in line with the increases of the previous two years (2.1% and 3.5% respectively); this reflects a significant population growth trend in a well-established inner metropolitan municipality where the opportunity for even medium scale subdivision is limited. The population growth is a result of increased housing opportunities, available through numerous 2 lot subdivisions of existing lots and the construction of multi-level accommodation.

Socio-Economic Indexes for Areas (SEIFA) is an assessment of the welfare of Australian communities. The indexes have been created by the Australian Bureau of Statistics and are informed by five-yearly Census data. The index ranks areas from most disadvantaged (1) to least disadvantaged (10). Moreland's result increased from six to seven following the release of 2016 Census data.
