Older People aged 50-85 years make up 25.9% (Census 2016) of the population in the Camden Local Government Area (LGA).
From 2011 to 2016, Camden Council area's population increased by 21,510 people (37.9%). This represents an average annual population change of 6.64% per year over the period. One of the largest changes in the age structure in this area between 2011 and 2016 was in the age group of older workers and pre-retirees aged 50 to 59 (+2,069 people).
The population within the LGA is estimated to grow significantly over the next 30 years as a result of the extensive new developments planned for the LGA with the South Western Sydney Growth Centre and as a result of the general aging population. This will present a challenge for Council and Community organisations working with older people to ensure services and activities continue to be relevant and meet the population demand.
