Housing and Location Choice
This chapter investigates the housing careers of older people from culturally and linguistically diverse (CALD) backgrounds, and how these activities significantly affect local housing and labour market, urban planning, and economic development. Generally, immigrants from English-speaking countries like the United Kingdom, the United States, and New Zealand have job and housing choices similar to most Australians. However, CALD immigrants may have diverse pathways. For instance, housing and location choice for those ethnic minorities may differ from those of their counterparts in Australia. Their location and housing decisions are limited due to the constraints of language, immigration policy, housing affordability, and lifestyle difference.
