Looking at the 2011 census from a property perspective provides a fascinating insight into how we’re living. As of the 2011 census there were 21,507,717 Australians, with 5,684,062 families and an average of 1.9 children per family. Looking at this in more detail, the census has information on the relationships we share with those we live with. The most popular relationship is that of husband and wife (with 7.6 million Australians). Next was ‘child under the age of 15’ i.e. dependents (3.6 million), then lone persons (1.9 million – almost one in ten), followed by de facto relationships (1.4 million) then non-dependent children (1.1 million).
