In the myriad of numbers, one finds a picture of a population that is quite affluent but which has a substantial portion of its population at risk of poverty. It is verging on a middle-aged population with the group which is decreasing most swiftly being that between 10-19 years of age. The household sizes are small and 3 out of every 4 workers work in the private sector in Malta, while half work in the private sector in Gozo.Salaries also speak volumes. €18 000 was the estimated average gross annual basic salary for employees with men peaking at an average of €19, 600 in the Northern district while women peaked at a significantly lower €16, 200 in the western district. Two out of every 5 unemployed were aged over 50 years and a third of the unemployed come from the Northern district.Gozo has the largest number of cars per licence holder while the north of Malta has the lowest: 700 cars per 1000 residents. Most cars have an age of 14 years and Birkirkara topped the list for highest number of traffic accidents. Traffic wardens were busiest in the North Harbour region with St Paul’s Bay being the locality with the highest number of contraventions issued. The Speed camera in Attard was the busiest with over 13,200 flashes to its name.The Gozo ferries saw a 7% increase in use in 2018 when compared to 2017 and Ċirkewwa was busiest on Friday and Saturday, whereas highest numbers from Mġarr were recorded on Sunday and Saturday. In 2017, 342 cruise liner called in Malta with a total of 670 135 cruise passengers, the latter increasing by 7.0 per cent over 2016. In comparison, only 23 cruise liners called in Gozo and Comino region with a total of 14 503 passengers.
