FREO’S INTERESTING VITAL SIGNS

The fantastic FREMANTLE FOUNDATION has published some interesting Vital Signs statistics about Fremantle, and I would like to share some of that with you all.

32,600 people work in the City of Fremantle and 39 per cent of the population were born overseas, but only 23%  speak a language other than English.

Only 9 per cent of Freo people walk or cycle to work, and our gender balance is pretty good with 51 out of 100 people being female.

According to the Fremantle Foundation stats there are 371 restaurants and cafes in the port city, 47 licensed venues, 20 live music venues and we had 149 events and festivals in 2016.

Unemployed in Fremantle has risen to 7.3%, and there are 139 crisis accommodation beds at St Patrick’s. 44% of Fremantle Doctor patients are between the age of 45 and 64 years old.

We are a smart mob in Freo with 64% of the population having a post-secondary education. The Australian average is 56%.

Only 19 per cent of the Freo community volunteered in 2010/11 and voters’ turnout was down to only 30.30% at the last local government election. It was 37.12% in 2013.

Only 26% of the Fremantle population is aged 0-25 years old, while the majority of 57% is aged 25-64, and 17 out of 100 are 65 and older.
