Australians are more likely to live together before marriage, have 'his and her' household chores and use more energy in their homes, according to the ABS' quarterly snapshot of society.Australians are more likely to live together before marriage, have 'his and her' household chores and use more energy in their homes, according to figures in Australian Social Trends, the now quarterly snapshot of society from the Australian Bureau of Statistics (ABS). This publication presents statistical analysis and commentary on a wide range of current social issues. New articles are released quarterly and are organised into eight chapters, representing the following broad areas of interest: population; family and community; health; education and training; work; economic resources; and housing, as well as a chapter of articles covering other areas of social concern. Each chapter is supported by a set of summary tables including key social indicators which provide an overview of social change over the past decade, as well as how social conditions differ across Australian states and territories. A set of international tables also compares Australia with 17 other nations.
