MILF hotspots in Cairns

ABS last week updated regional employment estimates by age and sex. Once upon a time prominent populist demographer Bernard Salt headlined the Cairns Post with a “man drought” in Cairns. There is a lot to look at in this data particularly related to employment statistics but a quick look at the sex data over the Cairns Urban area:

Mandrought 1

Quite a spread between 108.9% in Cairns City and 89.8% in Freshwater-Stratford. This is the urban area = Cairns-North + Cairns-South SA3. Tabulated for the SA4 region:

Cairns – North 96.5
Cairns – South 97.4
Total Cairns Urban 97.1
Innisfail – Cassowary Coast 105.1
Port Douglas – Daintree 103.3
Tablelands – Kuranda 96.3
Cairns SA4  98.3

But how does it compare more broadly:

Australia 98.4
Queensland 97.8
Cairns SA4 98.3
Townsville SA4 100.8
Mackay SA4 105.0
Central Qld SA4 102.3
Outback SA4 108.5

This supports my ongoing theme that Cairns is differentiated from regional North Queensland. Over 5 years the Cairns Urban ratio has fallen by 1.1 with the larger decline in Cairns-North.

Note 1: Remember the time when a Mayor of Mt Isa called for ugly women to move there to address their gender imbalance: Calling all ugly chicks! Mount Isa’s mayor makes his appeal

Note 2: Demographics around Bentley Park are also noted with the lowest age % of 65+ and the highest % of 15-: Cairns Post maligns Bentley Park
