The Australian Journal of Psychology published the demographic of university students in Sydney in 2012. The following facts were discovered:
- Age: between 16 and 74 years old, 83% of undergraduates are between 16 and 25 years old
- Sex: 71 % female
- Relationship status: 45 % in a relationship
- Programm: 68 % Undergraduates
- 66 % living with their family or partner
- 7 % University accommodation
- 22 % other accommodation
- 5 % living alone
The biggest group of students is between 16 and 25 years old, female, an undergraduate and living with their families or partners (Renner, O’Dea et al. 2015). Their demographic characteristics can be used to identify not only the university students in the preferred age range but also the music students. These could be addressed as secondary target group, because they are more heterogenic than the primary target group.
