Australians ditch religion at rapid rate, census shows

Australia is becoming older and more diverse — both culturally and religiously — according to new data from the country’s census.
While the first census in 1911 found the average Australian was a 24-year-old man, last year the typical Aussie was a married 38-year-old woman, who lives in a three-bedroom house, with two kids and two cars.
The census, which is conducted every five years, found that Asians now make up the largest percentage of the overseas-born population, jumping from in 2011 — 32.9% to 39.7% last year. Europe led that category the last time the survey was taken.
