The XX Factor
Curtin University: Bentley Campus
As far as jobs are concerned, there were more females working in the Accommodation & food services industry than in any other sector (187 female employees). Of this 187, just over half of these Bentley women were in the 20-24 year old age bracket - nothing like a fast food job to get you through your uni days!
The second most popular industry for women in Bentley was Health care & social assistance with 182 female employees, probably due to Bentley Hospital, followed by the retail industry with 181 female employees.
Proportion of Females by Suburb, 2006 Census
Interestingly, Bentley had a low proportion of women married in a registered marriage in comparison to the WA figure. Only a quarter of the women in Bentley had tied the knot, which was significantly lower than the 50% or so of females across the state who had made the commitment.
Catholicism was the most dominant religious affiliation (873 females), however the high proportion of females of the Islamic faith was most notable. Eight percent of women in Bentley recorded that they were of Islamic faith, which was much higher than the 1.3% figure for the female population of WA.
Finally, and no surprise, one fifth of the females living in this area attended a University or other tertiary institution when the 2006 Census was conducted, which was five times higher than the WA figure!
