Default Bit of fun - how posh are you?

Having seen dreamfish's post about Quotable Values giving out median incomes in a street, neighbourhood, area and NZ as a whole I thought it might be fun to get an idea of our residential areas by posting what we find out at:
https://www.qv.co.nz/standard.aspx
just pick your area and type in street/number then check out the *free* report on the area to get average age, ethnicity, incomes, etc

Found out we are quite posh here:
63% own their own home - NZ average 51%
Median income (household) here $82,000 - NZ $51,400
39% professionals - NZ average 29%
Median age here 46 - NZ 35 years

oh dear, we plebs live in a steet full of posh codgers...............and all for $350 a week, choooice.........

Now I know what Mr&Mrs Posh Kiwi from Remuera Road, Waitaramoa, Auckland are doing......

although 47% of over 15 yr olds are not in the labour force the household incomes are over $100k
....oh how the other half live.......

must be supported by the 62% of all over 15yrs who are working and are professionals......

what would be really interesting is a comparison between "now" and "back in england" - I'm going to have a nose and see what I can find....
