Data confidence level:
Wealth distribution in Australia, as in all countries, is not equal. This FACT indicates the percentage of households with a gross weekly income less than $600 in each Australian city; a wage that is difficult to live on, given the relatively high cost of living in Australia. Data collected in the 2011 ABS Census reveals that the Australian median weekly household income is $1234, and the percentage of households with a gross weekly income less than $600 across Australia is 23.7 percent. The city with the highest percentage is Hobart with 27 percent, followed closely by Adelaide at 26.1 percent. The city with the lowest is tied between Canberra and Darwin at 12.9 percent.
