The Australian Bureau of  Statistics has released the results of  the latest census taken in 2006. The report is v long with many interesting bits, as all census/censi? have. Among them are that a third of kids in their 20s are still living at home, women are on par with men in terms of educational qualifications, children of migrant parents are more likely to have higher education and earn more, we have more women than men, religion is less popular (for young and old) and the iGeneration comes of age.
