ABS: Richmond’s bandwagon fastest growing city in Australia
Richmond’s bandwagon is the fastest growing city in Australia according to figures released by the Australian Bureau of Statistics (ABS) today.
ABS Director of Demography Andrew Howe said Richmond’s bandwagon had added 46,545 people since last Friday.
“We’ve seen these sorts of fluctuations in the population before when it comes to this location but not usually this late in September,” Mr Howe said.
“Richmond’s bandwagon tends to have a high proportion of ‘fly-in-fly-out’ workers and follows a ‘boom-bust’ cycle.”
Longtime resident Barbara Clement said while it was great to see the Tiger Army swell, it made it hard to get essential services, like tickets.
“Luckily, the AFL always steps in at moments like these to make sure longtime residents are looked after ahead of other groups like corporates.”
Mr Howe said residents of the Richmond Bandwagon had some of the highest levels of alcoholism and stress related diseases in the Western world.
“This is a city that’s had its fair share of tough times, with the fumes from burning plastic causing numerous health scares over the years.”
