Census finds typical Aust a 38yo woman

"For example, the median age is 38, women are outnumbering men, and the average person was not able or simply couldn't be bothered to engage with the debacle that was our 2016 census".

That "typical" Australian couple also owns two cars and have completed their Year 12 studies.

In news that will shock no one, the typical Australian male is 37 years old and spends less than five hours a week on domestic work.

The typical person from New South Wales and Tasmania owns their home outright, while the typical Northern Territorian rents their home.

Rebecca's characteristics have not change markedly over the past decade, although the she is a year older than in 2006.

"This "typical" Australian, whatever that means, does not reflect in any way my life", says Melbourne curator Kimberley Moulton, a Yorta Yorta woman originally from Shepparton.

Australian Capital Territory: 35-year-old woman, married with two children with a three bedroom house with a mortgage, with both parents born in Australia.

In 1911, when the first Census was taken, the typical Australian was a 24-year-old male.

There's a little more room out west, and Paul has a house with four bedrooms as opposed to everyone else's three.

The typical migrant was born in England and is 44 years old, two years younger than the 46 years old of a decade ago.

McCormack said that "no two people living in Australia are the same and we've changed". In 2006 and 2011, the typical person in NSW had both parents born in Australia. It wasn't until the baby boom after World War II that the median age began to fall, but since 1971 it hasn't stopped rising - putting it at the current 38.

"That means low migration".

Remember the disaster of last year's census? The main census data release will be on June 27.

"It will also be used for planning so that government departments can make decisions about infrastructure, like where hospitals, or roads or schools should be built", she said.

"More than 58% of Australians completed their census online, representing a shift of 2.2 million more households participating online than in 2011", he said.
