2019 Retirement Census now open

The annual PwC/Property Council Retirement Census data collection is now open.  All retirement village operators are encouraged to participate.

Why participate?

Village operators who participate in the Retirement Census receive a free 60+ page report covering:

  • Unit sales 
  • Village financials 
  • Residence contracts
  • Village facilities
  • Resident demographics
  • Development pipeline
  • And more!

This is the most comprehensive report created for the Retirement Census and cannot be purchased.

Participating in the Retirement Census is a valuable opportunity to:

  • Benchmark your business against the rest of the sector
  • Contribute to the knowledge base about the sector
  • Assist the Property Council with advocacy and research on the industry’s behalf

Your data remains confidential.  The reports do not identify individual operators or villages, and we don’t advertise who participates.
