Bit harsh on Bristol Rovers considering there is another club in the city.

Bit harsh on 'us' ,with Oxford City eating into the figures that give 'us' 12th place & 4.4% of the population too ;)

perhaps, if our owner n his fellow directors ENGAGED with potential supporters and communicated HONESTLY and regularly, OUFCs 12th place and 4.4% of the population figures may be higher?

I would suggest a large % of our fans live outside the city of oxford

They should also take out away fans from the average attendances. Accringtons numbers for example will be skewed.

Yep. It is rather meaningless on how they have calculated it missing out rather important factors.

Are university students are included in the population of Oxford? They must total about 30,000.
In our case the population of Oxfordshire would be more appropriate ie 650,000?
Having said that I reckon half of our supporters live outside Oxfordshire.

Superficially interesting, but, as others have said, the population issue is misleading. There's really no point just looking at number of people within strict city / borough boundaries. More important are catchments / spheres of influence.

The catchment for Oxford, for example, must surely include Bicester, Didcot, Abingdon .... you get the idea. For Portsmouth - just look at a map! The city itself sits on a densely populated peninsula, but surrounding urban areas like Havant, Waterlooville, Gosport and Fareham are most definitely part of the city's wider environs.

Yes, mildly interesting but completely flawed as has been pointed out here and very lazy journalism to fill space. Anyone with a bit of time on their hands could have produced that and better.
They've not even bothered with the population of Wimbledon.
