Abstract The relationship of dwelling size, dwelling occupancy and resultant demographic outcomes has important implications for urban planning. This article aims to clarify the links in a study of Australian metropolises. Descriptive analysis and simulation are applied to the occupancy of (occupied) private dwellings by bedroom count using data from the Australian Census of Population and Housing. Results indicate significant variability in dwelling occupancy by dwelling size across and within metropolises. Given the range of housing types in Australia, planning analysis based on average dwelling occupancy derived from large statistical databases could misjudge population outcomes, subsequently complicating infrastructure provision and social policy.

住房套型、入住率和由此产生的人口分布状况之间的关系, 对城市规划产生重要影响。本文 试图通过对澳大利亚几大城市的研究, 厘清其中的关联。本文利用澳大利亚人口和住房普查 数据中的卧室数量统计, 通过描述性分析和模拟计算私人住宅的入住率。研究结果显示各大 城市之间以及同城不同户型的入住率有很大差异。由于澳大利亚住房类型多样, 依据源自大 数据库的平均入住率进行规划分析, 可能错误判断人口分布, 进而影响基础设施提供和社会 政策。
