A third of Australian workers were in manufacturing and construction, and another third in services. One in two Australians lived in urban areas, especially the capital cities, and the centennial decade was a period of particularly rapid urban growth. Throughout most of the nineteenth century, the Australian population was more urbanized than the American. " Many Australians were also well off by international standards.
