Port Adelaide - Population and Demographics

Population and Demographics

From the time of settlement, the port's population grew rapidly. By 1876 it was estimated that there were 5,000 living in 500 houses. More measured figures were 3,013 residents recorded in the 1881 census and 5005—living in approximately 1000 houses—recorded in the 1891 census. By 1911 the port was the State's second largest city and had a population over half that of Adelaide city. By 2006 the population had declined; that year's census records 1,099 living in c. 560 houses. The 2006 census also shows that suburb's median family income is average for Australia, though median individual and household income is lower. Over half of the population identified as Christian—mostly Catholic and Anglican—though almost a third expressed no religious affiliation.
