Thanks for reaching out with a question. It may be difficult to find current and precise data on this, given that there are multiple demographic groups on the peninsula. It would be appropriate in the context of this challenge to make some assumptions where information is hard to find, but be sure to link these assumptions to some reference points/context.
A few places you could go to gain more context on the economic situation on the Cape York Peninsula are below:
Also have a read of Chapter 2 of this report tabled in the Queensland government Economics committee. It is from 2011, but there is some still relevant information that will give you insight into the general context of the Cape. Qld House of Reps Economic report
I hope this helps – if you’d like to provide further context to your question by letting me know which specific project brief you’re working on, I may be able to help you further.
