Cardiff is a city in Wales, on the coast of the Bristol Channel. It is the capital and largest urban area of Wales and a major Welsh port. The city is home to the National Assembly for Wales, which was formed in 1999 following devolution from London.
The population of Cardiff was estimated to be 346,100 in 2017 with an increase of 3% over the previous year (2016). In 2018, Cardiff had an estimated population density of 1,900 people/km² which makes it one of the most densely populated cities in Europe.
The economy of Cardiff is mainly based on services (80%), followed by industry (19%) and agriculture (1%). At its peak during World War II, almost 75% worked directly or indirectly for steel production; today only about 25% work in this sector due to changes in technology and shipping patterns since then as well as deindustrialization—more jobs are created by tourism than any other sector.
The most popular neighborhoods are Roath and Canton. There are many great restaurants and pubs in this area, including the renowned Mermaid Tavern. If you're looking for information on local businesses or news stories about Cardiff's economy.
