This FACT indicates the percentage of people in each Australian capital city with an ancestry other than English or Australian. According to 2016 ABS Census, the city with the highest percentage of non- English or Australian ancestry is Sydney, at 62.5 percent; almost two thirds of the city's population. The population with the lowest non-English or Australian ancestry is Hobart, significantly lower at 37.2 percent. Adelaide and Hobart are the only two cities with a population consisting of majority Australian and English ancestry. A significant difference from the 2011 Census, in which all cities had a population consisting of majority English or Australian ancestry.
