If you have seen these survey maps you would know what I mean by the center. Most of the galaxies are rather close to us. And the number of galaxies far from us closer to the edge of the map is considerable less dense than near us. Needless to say we are at the center of the map. From an eyeball estimation I would say the the center of mass is 10% to 15% from us to the edge of the map. Most of the popular Cosmology books on the market include these maps.
