    The typical Australian

    The 2016 Census has delivered its first insight, revealing what characteristics make up the 'typical Australian'. According to the ABS, the typical Australian is: 38 years old female born in Australia of English ancestry married living in a couple family with two children in a house with three bedrooms and has two motor vehicles The description of the 'typical Australian' is based on the most common responses to last year’s Census. The 2011 Census data showed the 'average Australian' was a 37-year-old woman, living with her husband and two children in a three bedroom house in a suburb of one of Australia's capital cities. This interactive explores the diversity of Australian suburbia via ancestry, age, food, religion and birthplace data. Find out how your suburb ranks against the rest of Australia and which suburbs are the most diverse. http://www.sbs.com.au/news/interactive/how-diverse-is-my-suburb?cid=inbody:census-2016-the-new-typical-australian-revealed In the 2016 Census the 'typical person' varies from state to state - the average Tasmanian is the oldest at 42 years, while the average person from the Northern Territory is the youngest at 34. The ‘typical’ home in Tasmania and New South Wales is owned outright, while the ‘typical’ Northern Territory home is rented. In 2006, the ‘typical’ Australian home was owned outright. The 'typical' migrant was from England, but the 'typical' migrants in each state come from a range of countries -the average in Queensland was born in New Zealand, in Victoria it's India-born, and in New South Wales it's China Dr Amanda Elliot, form the Department of Sociology and Social Policy at the University of Sydney, said she understood why the ABS produced this information, but she argued the 'typical Australian' doesn’t reveal very much about the ordinary Australian experience in everyday life. "It’s fairly meaningless to ordinary people, and it’s fairly meaningless statistically as well,” she said. "The idea of what’s typical really masks our rich diversity, it masks the quite extraordinary multiculturalism, it renders all of that invisible." CENSUS FALLOUT Michael Turkic and William Uy Vu Le are a couple from Lidcombe, in NSW, and say they share the same pressures and stresses of a 'typical' couple. “When people ask me what makes us a typical Australian family or couple, we say the same things that make you a typical family - we have got children to look after,” Mr Turkic said. “We are putting a child through university, we have to worry about the rent, the mortgage the phone bills, the pick-ups and drop offs. “Regardless of the coupling or sexuality you’re in, they're the things that affect us every day." Mr Uy Vu Le also has total hearing loss, one of a group that represents just 0.1 per cent of the population. “For me, to be a typical Australian is to be exposed to a multicultural society from an early age and to be exposed to a diverse range of Australians from a diverse range of backgrounds,” he said. "It’s not just one type of Australian anymore.” Blue Mountains resident Julie Brett, one of 1048 followers of Druidism or Druidry at the 2011 Census, said her religion is not mainstream "but it is a spirituality I feel a lot of people would be drawn to because of the beauty of nature”. "I think a typical Australian's beliefs are diverse and really difficult to explain in a one question answer,” she said. The next ABS Census release, due on June 27, will include datasets for small population groups and small geographic areas, such as suburbs.
  3. Hello there, and thanks for reading. I am currently studying a two year foundation degree in Digital Design and then a top up year to study a Ba (hons) degree in Graphic Communication (graphic design) after this i wanting to do a PGCE in secondary Art & Design for a further year, followed by 3 years teaching in the UK before applying for immigration. Would this be enough to then go into full time teaching in Australia, i have been searching for weeks for an answer but nothing concrete, i want to teach in NSW preferably to. Thank you for any advice or information on anything else i would need to do to help me move over. Also any advise on student loans from uk, how do i arrange paying that back, when in OZ?
