Basically, vote on where you think the best place in the world to be a redhead is. Things that I included to narrow this down were places where the climate is sunny enough of the time to freckle, but cloudy enough to not get burned often, a higher level than normal of other redheads, and a redhead-tolerant culture.

Why did you single out SA and NSW?

I'd say Ireland or Scotland. Red-heads also tend to burn really easily so I would say a hot, sunny place isn't really the best for them.

I guess I had a false impression that the hot, sunny parts of Australia were to the north and west. I should have also included Victoria and Tasmania in the poll if the impression I had was true.

They are the hottest and sunniest places in general, although western NSW and most of SA are too.

I'm a Scottish redhead male, and I'm looking to relocate to Central Europe. Will the women there find me attractive, and will I encounter much racism?

The majority of people in both countries have brown hair. 13% of Scottish and 10% of Irish are redheads. 40% of Scottish carry the MC1R gene and 46% of Irish.

Current statistics are incomplete and provisional but they indicate that between 2% and 6% of Northwestern Europeans have red hair compared with an average of only 0.6% in the world’s population as a whole. In Britain the numbers are startlingly higher. In Ireland it seems that around 10% have red hair, that is 650,000 people, but at least 30% are unknowing carriers – and this percentage may be much higher. At least 1.6 million Scots carry a red-head gene variant and most are unaware that they do. But the place where most carry the red-headed variants may well not be in Scotland.

In Ireland about 10% have red hair, but it appears that a staggering 46% are carriers of the red-head variants. For England, the estimate is 6% but this is highly provisional and there are no current figures available for the number of carriers.
