SHEILAS UP BUT RELIGION DOWN IN AUSTRALIA

The fear that Australia is being swamped by a tsunami of Muslims has been proven unfounded by the latest CENSUS 2016 statistics, which shows that Buddhists are closing in on the only 2.6% of Australian residents who claim to be Muslims, while 2.4% are Buddhist.

In general people who claim to have no religion increased to 29.6% in 2016, compared to 0,8% in 1966.

The good news for us blokes is that there is a small majority of females with just over 50 %.

There have been 1.3 million new immigrants to Australia since 2011 and the most common countries they came from were China and India.

And the Turnbull government does not have to worry too much about the language skills of migrants with 72.7%  of CENSUS participants stating that they speak English at home.

The most important thing we should not underestimate is the enormous contribution immigrants to Australia are making. Without them we would not be the great multicultural and tolerant community we are!

    Pretty impressive though that in a nation with people from around 300 nationalities about 3/4 speak English at home.

    Roel in your remark for language, you missed to state that it has fallen from 2011 to 2016 by about 4%.

    2016 2011
    1 English (72.7) English (76.8)
