The XX Factor
Lucky Bay - Cape Le Grand, Esperance
Of those 9,534 residents, 52% (4,908) were women. Perhaps this could be another reason that Esperance is considered one of the most beautiful places in Australia.
Not only were there more women than men in the Urban Centre of Esperance, but the girls don’t mind getting their hands dirty with 41% (242) of all labourers being women. As far as professionals go, 55% (312) were female. Women had the highest representation in the Clerical and Administrative area. In fact, 86% of workers in this industry were female.
Proportion of Females in Esperance who have completed a Bachelor Degree, by Suburb - 2006 Census
Unfortunately, if you are a woman living in Esperance, your domestic labouring is quite high. 874 females reported doing 30hrs or more of unpaid domestic work compared to 157 males, while 1,050 women over the age of 15 volunteered for an organisation or group. Perhaps this is why Esperance won the 2009 South Coast Regional Tidy Town title?
As for education, more females (289) than males (188) stated that they held Bachelor degrees in 2006. Across all areas of non-school qualifications, Esperance women dominated except for Postgraduate Degrees where males (22) were slightly higher than females (16).
Esperance, beautiful and smart!
