Not surprisingly, the main field of occupation is Accommodation and Food Service. Twenty percent of all employed persons are in this industry. Other main industries include, Public Administration and Safety(12%) and Mining(11%).
In 2006, 48% of people above the age of 15 in Shark Bay stated that they were married, while 30% advised that they had not yet taken a trip down the aisle.
So that was a quick look at the folk in Shark Bay. What will be really interesting to see is how much the population of Shark Bay has changed since 2006.
All will be revealed after Census 2011.
