For every 100 women in Australia, there are 97 men.
Marriage is still the norm for couples, although married couples now account for a lower share of the population than they did in 1996 - down from 53.3 per cent to 49.6 per cent.
The number of followers of Hinduism has more than doubled since 1996, now covering 0.7 per cent of the population.
Followers of Buddhism also doubled to more than two per cent of the population.
Islam accounts for 1.7 per cent and Judaism 0.4 per cent.
Christianity remains the dominant religion. It grew slightly, from 12.6 million followers to 12.7 million but fell as a proportion of the population from 71 per cent to 64 per cent.
Almost 19 per cent of Australians said they had no religion.
The number of young people living with their parents grew by eight per cent and the number of students dependent on their parents rose by 14 per cent.
More school students now attend private schools, 35 per cent, compared to 30 per cent in 1996.
Living at home with your parents and going to private school? Yup. That's Melbourne alright. And 19 per cent of Aussies say they have no religion. That's a fair chunk of the populace given that a reasonable share of people would write down a religion even though they don't really follow it, I imagine.
