People in Darwin work the hardest in Australia, according to new data.
Figures from the Australian Bureau of Statistics show that the city has the highest employment rate, works the longest hours and also has the most number of employed people per household.
Speaking to News.com.au, Dr Ram Vemuri, head of Charles Darwin University School of Business, said that the Northern Territory is a state people come to for work rather than leisure.
He explained: "They come for a job, stay on for a job, and if they don't have a job anymore, they leave."
Dr Vemuri said that this was very different to cities such as Melbourne or Sydney, where people will stay for a while until they find more work.
With the youngest population of all capital cities, he added that the figures are because there are a higher number of people in Darwin of working ages.
