Who’s leading the events?

We’re looking at some prizes awarded for some odd categories:

  1. The State or Territory or New Zealand registering the most events for National Family History Month 2019
  2. Category award draws – Family History Societies, Local History Societies, Libraries, Archives, Museums etc
  3. City vs. Country prize draws
  4. Other group prizes

It’s been fun doing some calculations based on population!  Of course there could be arguments as to which source should be used for ‘current’ populations but if the same source is used for all then that creates a level playing field – currently using WorldAtlas as the source.

So If we ONLY look at number of EVENTS (6 Jul 2019), the top 5 States / Territories / Countries are:

  1. Victoria
  2. Queensland
  3. New South wales
  4. Western Australia
  5. South Australia and Australian Capital Territory

BUT if we take POPULATION into account (6 Jul 2019), the top 5 States / Territories / Countries are:

  1. Victoria
  2. Australian Capital Territory
  3. Queensland
  4. Western Australia
  5. New South Wales

If we look at City events (includes suburbs) and Country events, the Country ones are doing REALLY well when you consider the obviously larger populations in the capital cities!

  • Country – 27.27%
  • City – 72.73%

I’m about to select some events to do expanded blogs on them – to be selected you need to have your event registered!
