Change in density in residential areas
Changes in housing density have been calculated using the mean population weighted dwelling density for all Census mesh blocks in each region, which provides a measure of the average local dwelling density at which the population of a region lives, comparable to the net residential density figures used by some regional plans. This is more meaningful than a gross density averaged across the whole area of a region, because all regions comprise large areas without urban settlement, and non-residential mesh blocks with no dwellings or no population have no weight in the calculation (see glossary for further information) (data sourced from Australian Bureau of Statistics, 2074.0 Mesh Block Counts 2011 and 2016). Median lot size data for Queensland planning regions compares data for urban lot registrations (60 m² to < 2500 m²) for the years ending September 2012 and September 2017. Data is presented only for those parts of Queensland that are covered by the Queensland Treasury residential development profiles (data sourced from Queensland Government Statistician’s Office, Queensland Treasury).
