What the Census says about us

What the Census says about us

After all the problems that we had last year with the national Census, (remember how the website crashed as everyone was trying to provide their information?), it was interesting to see that the first little snippets of information from that Census began to be released by the Australian Bureau of Statistics this week.

The first data released on Tuesday provided some insights into the average Australian household, with a more detailed publication due to be released in June this year.

According to the 2016 Census, the ‘typical’ Australian is a 38-year-old female who was born in Australia, and is of English ancestry. She is married and lives as a couple with two children and has completed Year 12. She lives in a house with three bedrooms and two cars.

The age of the ‘typical’ Australian varies across the states and territories. Tasmania has the oldest average age of 42, whilst the ‘typical’ Northern Territorian is the youngest at 34.

From a real estate perspective, the ‘typical’ Australian house is owned with a mortgage. This has changed a little, as the Census of 2006 found that the ‘typical’ home ten years ago was owned outright. This also varies from state to state, with the ‘typical’ home in Tasmania and New South Wales owned outright, while in the Northern Territory it is rented.

The ‘typical’ Australian male is 37 years old – a year younger than the ‘typical’ female. However, the statistic will come as no surprise to many of our female readers is that the typical male spends less than 5 hours a week on domestic work…this compares with the ‘typical’ female who spends between 5 and 14 hours a week on these domestic duties!

If you’d like to know more about this information from the Census, you can go direct to the ABS website by CLICKING HERE…

Of course, if you need advice on any property matter, (rather than assistance with those domestic chores), you can call on us for up-to-date information at any time.

Apart from that, we hope you have a safe and relaxing Easter break.

Cheers,

Con Constantinou & Frank Romeo
