Win a $300 Amazon voucher
While there are many things that make a city liveable, their order of priority is different for everyone. There are several 'Liveability Indexes' that exist, but none that weigh the things that Australians prioritise with hard data.
Your responses will contribute to a better understanding of what a city's residents need, and what needs to be focused on at all levels of government.
Why conduct surveys?
Give voice to your opinions and be rewarded for your time.
While hard data is essential for the comparison of states and cities, empirical data is invaluable for capturing the sentiment and opinion of a city’s residents. Australia’s Best City, along with its parent company ipData, conducts numerous surveys on a wide range of topics to ensure that the database remains up-to-date, representative, and relevant.
Survey responses also help shape policy and company decisions by contributing to reports and in-depth analysis that Australia’s Best City, and parent company ipData, conducts on their behalf.

Australia’s Best City and research consulting firm ipData are committed to providing in-depth analysis through survey generation. Coupled with extensive experience in research and consultation, an independently-run survey can provide the impetus for positive change.
All surveys conducted are statistically significant and, when necessary, represent a cross-section of demographics thanks to the vastly different community circles of both Australia’s Best City and ipData. To ensure complete responses, respondents are offered incentives through competitions and prizes.

Australian Rules football, also known as Aussie Rules, is one of Australia’s most beloved sports. Born in the backyard of Australia, it is the only major sport to be invented in Australia. The governing body and national league of Aussie Rules is called the AFL. The league was founded as the Victorian Football League (VFL), but rebranded as the AFL in 1990 to reflect the growing number of non-Victorian based clubs joining the competition. Every year a total of the best 22 players from all teams in the AFL are strategically picked to make up the All-Australian team.
This FACT indicates the number of All-Australians since 1991 per 100,000, by the state or territory they were born in (not necessarily the state of origin).
*If a player’s birthplace could not be identified, their state of origin (state where their junior career started) has been assumed as their birthplace.
*Players born overseas have not been included in this FACT.
This FACT indicates the proportion of domestic students that are enrolled at a university as a percentage of the population, within each state for the year 2013. The state with the highest percentage of enrolled domestic students is the Australian Capital Territory, at 8.18 percent. The state with the lowest is Adelaide, at 4.44 percent.
This FACT indicates the number of days waited for patient admissions from waiting lists for elective surgery in the 90th percentile. The 90th percentile means that 90 percent of the people admitted from waiting lists are admitted within and beyond 365 days. The other 10% are outliers and fall outside the range of the other 90 percent either above or below. The state/territory with the highest number of days waited is Tasmania at 401 days. The state/territory with the lowest number of days waited is Western Australia at 142 days, followed closely by Queensland, at 186 days.
Which Australian capital city's population enjoys the highest wages? This FACT indicates the percentage of households with a gross weekly income more than $3000 in each Australian city. The average percentage of households with a gross weekly income of more than $3000 across Australia is 11.2 percent. Data collected in the 2011 ABS Census reveals that the city with the highest percentage is Canberra at 23.7 percent. This is unsurprising, given the proportion of government and public servants residing there, who typically earn above average salaries. The city with the lowest is Hobart, at 7.3 percent.
