    Hi Glenn

    Thoroughly enjoyed the Census Crystal Ball Gazing Results.
    For a layperson that is a very clear way of receiving the information as well as being fun.

  2. We now have the result for the one stat which wasn’t available in first release. The second release Work From Home percentage is the subject of an upcoming blog. But the data shows that 21% of Australia’s population worked from home on Census day. I predicted 25% (which was very close to the percentage in my home state of Victoria) – so I was a little high nationally but am counting this as a hit, since it was much closer than the 4.7% recorded in the 2016 Census.

    This means the final record is 5 hits, 3 partial hits and 4 misses.
