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.

This FACT indicates the total fertility rates in each Australian state. The total fertility rate (TFR) represents the number of children a female could expect to bear during her lifetime if she experienced current age-specific fertility rates at each stage of her reproductive life. The TFR is the sum of age-specific fertility rates (live births at each age of mother per 1,000 of the estimated female population of the same age). The state with the highest fertility rate is the Northern Territory at 2.206 children. The state with the lowest TFR is the Australian Capital Territory at 1.794 children.
Australia is a country which is famously known to be gird by seas. Much of the Australian lifestyle revolves around the sea with all of the cities within relatively close proximity to it. The coastal land is more fertile and arable than inland Australia, therefore we have been forced to move to the countrys' borders.
This FACT indicates the length of coastline in each Australian state in kilometers. Western Australia has the longest coastline with 12913 kilometers, whereas the ACT which has no ocean coastal region, but does border a lake has only 36 kilometers.
This FACT indicates the total number of live music venues per 100,000 persons in each Australian state according to the Australasian Performing Right Association (APRA), as of September 2011.
The state with the highest proportion is South Australia, at 15 venues per 100,000 people. The state with the least is Tasmania, at 7.07 venues per 100,000 people.
This FACT indicates the total number of victims of homicide in each state, between 2012-2013. The state/territory with the highest number is New South Wales at 257. The state/territory with the lowest number is the Australian Capital Territory at 5. Results in both these cases are unsurprising, in relation to the size of their population.
This FACT indicates the number of people with a bachelor’s degree qualification who are male in each capital. A bachelor’s degree is typically earned after undertaking 3 to 5 years of undergraduate study, although this range can vary depending on the field of study, study load and, of course, the student’s diligence.
