My two cents... catching buses with the "variety" of people of Mayfield is a new concept to me, coming from somewhere like Nelson Bay.

Callaghan is a suburb, for arguments sake, but it really is just the uni. It was silly to include it - bit of a 'dah' moment..

Newcastle in general is povo. Catch public transport or go to centrelink and you will find out first hand.

i had the impression that callaghan was a lot bigger than the uni and its couple of surrounding blocks :S

numerically, sydney would probably have more hobos, but percentage wise...probably not.

Nop. Callaghan is the uni. All else is Birmingham Gardens, Jesmond, Waratah, Mayfield..uh..Warabrook..Shortland..that'd be it I think.

So basically the title of this thread should be renamed to "uni students are povos" or more simply "we are povos". :p

basically whoever did the study didnt specify that this suburb is actually jsut a uni campus and would skew results ever so slightly

"Callaghan is the area covering the student halls of residence at NSW's University of Newcastle. The average income is just over $27,000."

Seems like they did specify.
