Apparently some kind of 'alternative' census has been done of 2,000 families and it's revealed some pretty surprising statistics!
The findings include information on the average British family's favourite TV programme as well as the amount they spend on their usual weekly food shop. The main results are below but after a quick 'vox pop' in our office, we aren't entirely sure who these 'average families' are.......
The Average Family
The average family go to bed at 10.39pm They get up at 6.57am Mothers do most of the housework Fathers have a tendency to moan about cost of living
The average weekly food bill is £76.02 and £12 on alcohol The average family own a silver Ford focus They own a semi-detached and have a mortgage (with nearly 32% of it paid off) They go on holidays twice a year (Lucky them!) Doctor Who is their favourite TV programme. Fave dinners include; Spag bog on a Monday, Pasta bake on a Tuesday, Chicken pie on Wednesday and Cottage pie on a Thursday 68% of the people polled think the recession has left them with less 'money in their pocket'
