Family types

In Pataua, 38.0% of households were made up of family type 'couples with children' compared with 35.5% in the Whangarei District Council in 2018.

Households with Children require different services and facilities than other household types, and their needs change as both adults and children age. When many families in an area are at the same stage in their individual lifecycles, it creates a suburb lifecycle. Knowing where a suburb is in a cycle of change helps planners make evidence-based decisions about the demand for services both now and in the future.

To continue building the story, Pataua's family data should be viewed in conjunction with Households, Household Size, Age Structure and Dwelling Type data.

Derived from the Census questions:
