    The process of averaging data is beyond comprehension. An example is the figure quoted in for the amount Australian households spend. How can such information be of any use other than to demonstrate the huge in equality of our nation. The majority of our population is working class earning less than $40k if that and for them to read that the average spend of the Au household is $95k must be salt to the wound. Why cant the data be provided in a meaningful way such as earning categories at $20k increments and the relevant spend. Researchers often miss out on social intelligence thus their reporting becomes meaningless garbage.

    I’d be interested where insurances come into this. I can understand health insurance hiding within health and car insurance within transport, but putting house & contents insurance in housing & utilities obscures how much the actual base cost is. Then there’s life/trauma and income protection insurance – where’s that?. Our combined household insurance bill across house & contents, health, life/trauma & Income Protection for each adult, plus motor vehicles would buy an investment property – which is becoming a very high balance against the relative risk – but that’s just when something would go wrong. If insurances aren’t identified as a major cost, it slips under the radar and the gouging continues.
