Population has doubled since 1976.
Baby Boomers are being overtaken by Gen X as biggest generation.
More than 50% of Australians have one or both parents born overseas.
ACT has fastest growing population - makes sense there's fark all to do except grow weed and fark.
Gold Coast most expensive - shock horror.
Less marriages - more divorces.
More multicultural.
Less religious - oh yeah, us atheists are winning the war and we're not doing anything. 8-) LMAO. Even the Jedi are in decline.
Over 1 million dwellings are vacant - that's a weird one.

Haven’t read it but assume this synopsis was lifted verbatim from the offical report :-).

The one million vacant dwellings are because no-one can afford them…

Admittedly the Jedi are in decline because there has been campaigns encouraging people to not write "Jedi", because that lists you as religious and when the state sees this, they say, "we should divert more funding to religious services"

The vacant dwellings is a negative gearing thing apparently. Some people get a better return on their money if they leave the investment property vacant. Pretty fucked up when we have housing shortages.

I guess holiday homes and considered vacant also & maybe if whole property Air bnb places weren’t booked because of covid they would count as vacant on census night

That exact point was raised on a panel show discussing the CENSUS results (can't remember which one) with one stating he changed from saying Jedi to no religion for that very reason. It's interesting that more people are answering this question this time around that have in previous census as it's still voluntary.

Hang on, did i miss the census?

edit: oh, we're finally getting results form last year.

I've been flat out at work lately. Companies are finally appointing liquidators after 2 years.

Q: why does it take so long to publish what is a essentially a "tick the box" exercise?

I'd say it's a matter of how many people they employ to transfer the data from the census papers to the database they work out the stats from.

Trump claimed that he won the census, so they had to recount it 5 times.
