Business Turnover

Business turnovers in the 

suburb tend to reflect the 

trend of sole traders

and few employees. This is

to be expected with the 

absence of commercial

space that is such a part of 

the local community vibe.

 

Business Industry

 

When looking at business industries prevalent in Kenmore Hills 24.1% of them classify as professional, scientific and technical services roughly 10% higher than the Brisbane average.

The suburb has 3.3% less (at 9.7%) of the businesses represented by construction related industries than the rest of Brisbane, which aligns with a much lower statistic of employment as labourers and alike. 

 

However it should be noted that statistics group Kenmore Hills with Brookfield for business counts, and it is likely that larger businesses of these statistics operate in Brookfield nearby rather than Kenmore Hills specifically.


       

Education  and Employment

Kenmore Hills has well above the average state education level which likely is reflected in the employment sectors.

Much alike the surrounding suburbs Kenmore Hills has a significant employment percentage in higher education (6.2% compared to state averages of 1.3%). Just as nearby suburbs such as Pullenvale extending to Moggill and surrounds the suburb also has a high amount of employment in healthcare particularly hospitals, which is its third highest employment area behind another local hot area employment sector of Computer system design and related services.

Brookfield (3.0%), Pullenvale (3.2%) and Kenmore Hills (4.6%) all have very high employment in computer system design and related services, however Kenmore hills has roughly 1% more of the population in this sector to its neighbours. This is significant when state wide only 1.1% of the population is in computer system design.

 

It is interesting that Kenmore Hills and its local with generally lower internet speeds has such high employment in this area, and possibly disappointing that their connections are worse given they work in highly reliant industries to technology and the internet. 

 

The forth largest sector of employment is capped off in the suburb by primary education 1.4% higher than the national average roughly sitting at 4.6% of the local employment.

 

The employment trend is very similar to the other west side postcodes of 4069 and 4070 , especially Pullenvale and Brookfield. 

The suburb of Kenmore Hills has nearly 20% more of its workers employed as professionals than the state average sitting at 37.8% compared to the average of 19.8% state wide. 

For sub major employment types, without industry specific focus the suburb has Specialist Managers (10.2%) as its largest employment role just before health professionals (7.7%) and educational professionals (7.5%) followed closely by design, engineering, science and transport professionals (7.0%). 

Age

The average age in Kenmore Hills is 46, suggesting many are in a near range to consider retirement. Pairing with the higher disposable income in many cases having self managed superannuation funds will be a valid option to explore for many residents. The suburb has the same average age as neighbour Brookfield, however there is a greater split with extremes in Kenmore driving the average age up. The 70-74 year olds are an example of the more divergent age demographic in Kenmore representing 5.5% of the population which compares to 3.8% as the state average and 4.5% in Brookfield. 

Gender

Kenmore Hills has a majority female demographic at 52.2% female. 

 

The suburb household composition has 0.9 children on average per household, suggesting there is a reasonably large amount of people free of some high costing child related expenses.  

Occupancy ownership

45.5% of houses are owned outright in Kenmore Hills, nearly 20% higher than the state average, in spite of well higher than average housing prices. 

Unoccupied private dwellings

 

Kenmore Hills has a 93.2% occupancy of houses, which is 5.2% higher than the state average and 6.2% more than the national average. 

Volunteering

Kenmore Hills has 6% more of the population volunteering than the state average and a larger gap to the national average. A total of 25.6% of the population engage in volunteer activities annually for groups and organisations. This makes Kenmore Hills one of the lower volunteering suburbs of the 4069/4070 postcodes yet still clearly a time generous culture locally supported.

Crime

 

Kenmore Hills has nearly a fifth of the average crime against people than the average statistics nationally per 1000 people. The suburb in other offences has not even a tenth comparatively to the national averages making it arguably the safest suburb in Queensland (it should be noted this particular statistic is grouped with Brookfield in records).
