Electorates by percentage over age 65

 

Each line has, as usual, seat, state, margin, AEC classification; last number is proportion of population over 65 (at Census 2001; numbers taken from APH).

What can we see? No surprises in over-representation of South Australia at top of list, or absence of Labor seats there.

Outer suburban electorates strongly congregate at bottom.
