Australians loved using Ashley Madison

Recent figures from Reuters, folllowing the Ashley Madison data dump, show an extraordinary number of Australians used the website, presumably to have affairs. The numbers are simply astounding, and Aussies took to Ashley Madison with gusto- at twice the rate of big cities overseas:

Sao Paulo, Brazil is the overall winner with 374,542 users.

The population of Sao Paulo is about 11 million, or about half the Australian population in that one city. In other words, about 3% of the population had signed up.

New York: 268, 171

New York has a population of 8.4 million. About 3% again.

Sydney: 251, 813

Sydney has a population of 4.3 million. Almost 6%!

Melbourne: 213, 847

Melbourne has a population of 4.1 million. About 5%.

Brisbane: 118,857

Brisbane has a population of 2.1 million. Almost 6% again!

Perth: 88,754
