Religion - Antiochian Orthodox
Household type

In New South Wales, 76.2% of people with Antiochian Orthodox religious affiliation lived in households made up of couples with children in 2011, compared to 49.8% of the total population.

Household and family structure is one of the most important demographic indicators. For religious communities, only those family members who share the same religion are counted. Other family members who do not share the same religion or did not state their religion are not included in the table. However, if multiple household members are of the same religion, the household will be counted twice at this topic.

To continue building the story, Household Type should be viewed in conjunction with Household Size and Age Structure.

Derived from the Census questions:

  • 'What is the person's relationship [to each other person in the household]?'
  • 'What is your religion?'

  • People with a religion of Antiochian Orthodox living in private dwellings
