PwC/Property Council Retirement Census

The PwC/Property Council Retirement Census is the most comprehensive aggregated data source about retirement villages in Australia. The Census profiles the physical characteristics of villages, ownership details, business attributes (e.g. tenure, financial structure, operating overheads), and resident profiles (e.g. demographics, length of stay).

All background information about the Census can be found in our Census FAQs.

The data collection for the 2016 PwC/Property Council Retirement Census is now closed. Thanks to all of those organisations that contributed. The Census reports will be released in the second half of 2016.

All contributors will receive a comprehensive data report from PwC on how their village/s compare against national and state averages.

Retirement village operators or developers, whether members of the Property Council or not, are able to contribute data to the Retirement Census.
