I've tried to do research on it. Honestly, it's impossible. Who should a parent go to for advice on this subject.

It could also be due to other factors too. Perhaps HPV is less common in Australia. Perhaps Australians are less promiscuous and thus less prone to spread HPV. There may be different strains of HPV at work around the globe, and it could be the one most common in Australia is less prone to triggering cervical cancer.
Did the research in question examine any of these possible questions and others I'm not even thinking of or just make the preferred correlation? Remember, correlation does not always equal causation.

The difference of 300 people in a population of 25+ million....
If anything that's proof of how infective the vaccine truly is.

Not sure what the problem is, really.
Idiots who don't want to get vaccinated or have their children vaccinated will, over time, become ill and die out, thereby removing the weak genetics from our gene pool.
Sounds like a win-win scenario for humanity
Your assertions are simply not correct. If all of the 53+ million (total population for Texas and Aus) is infected with HPV then you would be correct whereas CDC statistics show its much much lower so the overall reduction is more significant that you are implying.
More than half of the American teens are having sex before they turn 18. However, contraceptive use has also significantly increased over the years, says a new study by the National Survey of Family Growth, which is administered by the United States Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDS).
The increase in the use of protection among teenagers has helped lower the birthrate to 22 per 1,000 females in 2015 from 62 per 1,000 in 1991.
Aligned with these results, the rate of teen pregnancy and births in the U.S. has been steadily decreasing since the early 1990s. In 2015, a historic low of 22.3 births per 1,000 teens was recorded.
Most of the 55 percent of teens who have had sex by the age of 18 used some type of protection, typically a condom, the study said.
