The Bureau of Statistics released some data today on social trends.
And every other media outlet with a moron for editor/producer in Australia is making much of this data and its significance for their local area.
Guess what? Canberrans remain better educated and higher earning, on average, than other jurisdictions. Hardly news. Call me when that ceases to be the case.
More importantly the data is for 2006-7.
Internet demography, bus usage? This data is now so out of date as to be meaningless in news terms.
Still very important for the ABS and for Government. Not news.
So excuse this rant and we now return to normal service.
