Sydney’s quintessential bachelor

26 Apr

Our rainy long weekend was the perfect opportunity for me to spend some quality time with my enormous spreadsheet. And so, without further ado, I thought you might like to learn more about the single men I surveyed in the CBD.

What’s most important to them

In response to the question, “What are the three most important things in your life?”:

  • 68.69% listed family
  • 58.59% listed friends
  • 21.21% listed work

Only 8.08% listed money. More men listed sport than money.

Top jobs

The most common jobs among surveyed CBDers are:

  • Accountants
  • IT consultant or engineer
  • Construction or demolition
  • Finance

As many men were bar managers as bankers. 

CBD men’s favourite Sydney suburbs to socialise in are:

  • Bondi
  • CBD
  • Coogee
  • Darlinghurst
  • Paddington


 Favourite watering holes:

  • Verandah Bar
  • Argyle
  • Edinburgh Castle
  • Est
  • Ryan’s Bar

The most popular sports for CBD men to participate in are:

  • golf
  • tennis
  • football
  • soccer
  • gym.

I’ll send through more information once I’ve finished analysing all my delicious data.

Hope you all enjoyed your long weekend and happy ANZAC DAY to all the brave men (and women!) who are serving, or have served, in our armed forces.

    I love statistics. The only thing I love more is a woman who loves statistics.
