On June 27, 2006 ABC Brisbane reported, "A new study will ask Muslim children and teenagers living in Mackay, Rockhampton and Brisbane how they feel they fit in to the wider community. Central Queensland University's Dr Sansnee Jirojwong says there are about 20 or 30 young Muslim people living in the Mackay area. Dr Jirojwong says researchers want to see if there are any differences in the support available for young Muslims living outside the state capital. 'Of course it will be different to the environment, living arrangements, the social context, compared to Brisbane, so that's why we select also Mackay as one of the study sites,' he said."
