This FACT indicates the number of people born into Generation Jones, between the years 1954 and 1965, per 100,000 in each city. This number represents Census results for 2016. 'Generation Jones' was a term coined by author Jonathan Pontell and refers to the generation that was born between 1957 and 1966. This period straddles both the Baby Boomer generation following WWII and the first wave of Generation X's. While the numbers are fairly even across the board, Hobart has the highest proportion of Generation Jones’, at 17,379 per 100,000 persons.
Given that the Commonwealth of Australia was colonized by Britain in the late 18th century, it is no surprise that there is a large percentage of the Australian population who have British ancestry. However, the largest wave of British immigrants settled in Australia in the 18th and mid-19th centuries. Since then, immigration in Australia is much more diverse. This trend was sparked by the first big wave of European and Asian immigrants during the gold rush of the 1850s. Today, migration procedures have become stricter and international political circumstances are different, which has created a change in immigration patterns around the world. The percentage of people who presently immigrate from the United Kingdom is therefore far less than in former times, and certainly does not represent the number of Australians with British ancestry.
This FACT indicates the number of people born in the United Kingdom per 100,000 persons in each Australian city. According to the results of the 2016 Census, the city with the highest proportion of UK Born people is Perth, at 10,251 per 100,000. The city with the least is Melbourne, at 3,599 per 100,000.
This FACT indicates the number of Australians with Jewish affiliation in each Australian city. Judaism is a monotheistic religion, articulated by the Torah and supplemental oral tradition represented by later texts. The majority of the world’s Jewish population resides in Israel, followed by North America.
Data from the 2016 Census shows that the city with the highest number of people with Jewish affiliation is Melbourne, at 41,643. The city with the lowest number of people with Jewish affiliation is Darwin, at 79.
This FACT indicates the total number of restaurants that are listed within the Yellow Pages in each Australian city per 100,000 persons. It excludes fast food restaurants and function centres. Note that not all restaurants are listed in public listing directories, so the information presented here should be taken as a general guide to numbers rather than a complete set of statistics. However, while there are no exact figures on the number of restaurants and eateries operating in each city, the disparity in numbers shown here affords an interesting point for discussion. According to the Yellow Pages listings in March 2018, Canberra has the highest number of restaurants, at 267.30 per 100,000 persons. Brisbane, on the other hand, has the lowest proportion, at 78.43 restaurants per 100,000 persons.
This FACT indicates the percentage of households that own three or more televisions in each Australian state according to the Australian Bureau of Statistics.
