REDLAND residents are more likely to be older, have a higher household income, be part of a married couple with children and live in a separate house.
We send our children to a non-government school, have two cars, do more unpaid domestic work, have bigger houses, be slightly more religious, speak English only, have UK or Australian ancestry and less likely to rent than the rest of Queensland and Australia.
That snapshot of us is revealved in the the Census figures released by the Australian Bureau of Statistics last week.
The 2011 Census revealed Redlands has grown by more than 11,000 people since 2006 but the growth rate has slowed.
The Census recorded 138,666 people living in Redland City, up from 127,627 in 2006, and 113,811 in 2001.
The population growth between 2006 and 2011 was 8.6 per cent, compared with 12.1 per cent between 2001 and 2006.
In the 2011 Census, women comprised 51 per cent of the population, and the median age of a Redland resident was 39. This compares with a median age of 36 for Queensland and 37 for Australia.
(Median is the middle value a figure there is an equal number either side).
Children aged up to 14 years make up 20 per cent of the population and those aged over 65 years make up 14.5 per cent.
The average number of children per family is 1.9, the median weekly income is $1365 and the median monthly mortgage repayment is $2000. While the median weekly rent is $350, and the average motor vehicle per household is 1.9.
A higher percentage of people in Redland is married (53 per cent) compared with Queensland 47.9 per cent and Australia (48.7 per cent).
With almost three in four Redland residents born in Australia, locals are much less likely to speak a foreign language than people living in other parts of the nation.
Locally, 91 per cent said they only spoke English at home compared to the nationwide figure of about 77 per cent.
Apart from Australia, and England, the other common countries of birth of Redlands are New Zealand, South Africa, Scotland and Germany all at higher levels than Queensland and Australia.
The Redlands population has a higher proportion of people under 45 than over 45 according to the 2011 Census figures reveal.
The figures reveal that 79,977 people are aged less than 45 years of age and 58,689 are aged over 45 years of age.
That's 58 per cent to 42 per cent in favour of the younger age group.
However, the largest single 15 year age grouping is the 45-59 year group, with 21.5 per cent, followed closely by the 0 to 14 grouping with 20 per cent.
The median age of the Redland population is 39 years, compared with 36 years for Queensland and 37 years for Australia.
The slight weighting to the under 45 years grouping in Redlands is because of the large numbers in all three 15- year age groupings compared with the falling off in numbers in the top two 15-year grouping over 45 years.
