This FACT indicates the number of churches in each Australian capital city per 100,000 persons. Data was obtained from the Yellow Pages online listing directory, with a church being defined as a place of worship for those religions that base their beliefs upon the teachings of Christ. The churches where faith in Christ's teachings are observed include; Anglican, Assemblies of God, Baptist, Catholic, Christian, Churches of Christ, Congregational, Eastern Orthodox, Jehovah's Witnesses, Lutheran, Methodist, Pentecostal, Presbyterian, Reformed Church, and the Uniting Church. As the data was obtained from the Yellow Pages online listing directory, the lack of credibility of this indicator should be taken into consideration. Nonetheless, the disparity in numbers cross-referenced with population size, provides interesting scope for discussion. When dividing the number of churches by the population and then dividing that number by 100,000, the results were interesting: Adelaide, known as 'the city of churches', came in fourth, at 29.02 churches per 100,000 people. Canberra came at the top of the list, with 71.42 churches per 100,000 people. The city with the lowest number of churches by 100,000 people was Perth, at 16.93.
