McCrindle media coverage

Tuesday, May 17, 2016

As Australia’s leading social researchers, the senior research team at McCrindle are actively involved in media commentary. From demographic analysis and future forecasts, to communication of key research findings and the identification of social trends, at McCrindle we are passionate about communicating insights in clear, accessible and useable ways.

We assist our clients in identifying newsworthy media angles in their research to assist them in communicating the insights effectively with the broader public.

Here are some of our recent media appearances:

Sydney is growing by 1600 people per week, which means one new Avalon suburb every 6 weeks. Mark McCrindle shares some of our research results into the future of Sydney, and how Sydneysiders think infrastructure will keep up with this growth, in response to Dick Smith's population growth media coverage.

If you go back three decades, the top 5 countries of Australians overseas born were all European countries with New Zealand in that mix. Today, three of the top five countries are in Asia. Over the next few decades we'll see that proportion of Sydneysiders born overseas, close in on the 1 in 2 figure, that halfway point. Mark McCrindle talks to SBS World News about migration as a key driver of Australia's population growth.

Sydney grows by more people every 13 days than the whole of Tasmania adds in an entire year. 5 million people will live in Sydney by the end of the year, and for young families, the west is where they can get those house and land packages, a bit more affordability and that's why there is growth there. Mark McCrindle talks to Seven News about the Urban Sprawl Sydney is currently experiencing.

Social researcher Mark McCrindle agrees that the e-change movement is a new phenomenon. With the cost of living and commute times in cities increasing — and affordable housing prospects dwindling — people are moving further away from the CBD. “While that goal of moving out of the big smoke on a tree-change or sea change has always been aspirational, it has suddenly become possible now with the new technology,” he confirms. So why are we swapping urban for suburban?

The children of Australia are today's students and tomorrow's employees. And while each generation has passed through the student lifestage, Generation Z are the only ones to have done so in the 21st century. They can be defined as being post-linear, post-literate, and post-logical. They have been born into a time that has seen the printed word morph into an electronic form. Education is shifting from structured classrooms to collaborative means, from textbooks to tablets and from reports to infographics and video presentations.

Figures from the Australian Institute of Family Studies indicate that up to two-thirds of parents may be giving money towards living costs, or as a loan or gift to children in their mid-twenties. "The proportion of 25-year-olds still living in the parental home has doubled from one-in-six in 1976, to almost one-in-three today," adds Mark McCrindle. "The main reasons for this are economic - young people today are far more likely to be in the education system later in life than the previous generation were. Not only are they delaying their earning years, but the costs of moving out of home are significantly higher than those faced by previous generations because of the much higher house prices and resulting rental costs. And so, financial independence occurs later in life."

As far back as 1996, the Australian Bureau of Statistics reported that 20 per cent of women remained childless at the end of their reproductive life. That figure has been increasing ever since; in 2006 women aged between 40 and 44 were twice as likely to be childless as their counterparts in 1961. Demographer Mark McCrindle says that social trends and the later age at which people start families has created this decline in the number of grandparents. “They are ‘in-waiting’ because their children don’t have kids and they are left bereft of that longed-for role,” he says.
