Data confidence level:
This FACT indicates the number of people who speak Greek at home per 100,000 persons. In the middle of the 20th century, thousands of Greeks immigrated into Australia as part of the Australian Government “Populate or Perish” incentive. Most Greek immigrants settled in Melbourne, Adelaide and Sydney as they seemed like the best places to find work. During this time, the Greeks influenced a large cultural change in Australian cities with the growth of Greek cuisine and community clubs in each city. This data was collected for the 2011 ABS Census. The city with highest number per 100,000 persons is Melbourne at 2835.21, closely followed by Adelaide at 1916.29. The city with the lowest number is Perth at 289.90.
