From the data collected describe the characteristics of an average Australian

An average Australian is a female that lives on the NSW coastline with a 2 story house. She is married and has 2 children a girl and a boy. Her occupation is a sales assistant and she works 32 hours a week and drives a car to work. She earns on an average $72 000 a year and the mortgage of her house is $1800 a month. She is also Cristian and has finished school. In her family she has 2 pets and her children both go to private schools. She drives her children to school and picks them up after school. Their family goes on holidays about every 3-4 years and usually goes to places like NZ, USA, Asia, UK and continental Europe. She is 37 years old and she and her husband own a car each. She was born in Australia but both her parents came here from England.

How are you an average Australian? Discuss your similarities and differences from the data you collected.

In some ways I am not an average Australian but in some ways I am. I have many different things in my family. I have 5 people in my family a set of twins (one boy one girl), me, my mum and my dad. My family also has 3 cars we live in QLD and have lived in our house for more then eight years. My mum is a nurse and my dad is a horticulturalist.The things that I have in my family that are the same as the census data are my dad works more than my mum, our family lives in a house, my parents are both married, we own 2+ pets, have more than 2 computers, have access to wifi and have a two story house.

How has your perception changed of an average Australian?

My perception has definitely changed after this task as I know many things about census data that I didn't know before and a few of my perceptions were incorrect. I always thought there were more men in Australia than women or the average Australian occupation was an office worker.

What is a typical Australian
To me a typical Australian lives in a family of four with 2 kids (one boy one girl) and two adults. They own 2 cars and live in a house on the coastline of NSW. The parents of the children are married and have a two story house. Also I think the average Australian is 34 and their occupation would be an office worker. An average Australian would also go on a small holiday like to the beach every 1-2 terms and go on an overseas holiday every 3-4 years. Their family would have 2+ computers and have access to wifi. Her ancestry would be English but she would be born in Australia.
