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.

Home ownership is a cornerstone of the Australian Dream... but how many people have actually realised it?
This FACT indicates the percentage of privately outright owned homes within each Australian city. These figures have been sorted from high to low, since owning one's own home is considered a financial asset. Across Australia, around one third (32.1 percent) of occupied dwellings are privately owned outright. Statistics from the 2011 ABS Census show that the city with the highest percentage is Hobart, at 33.6 percent. The city with the lowest is Darwin at 17.8 percent.
This FACT indicates the vegetable production for human consumption (tonnes) (includes beans, capsicums, carrots, lettuces, melons (including rock, bitter and water), mushrooms, onions, potatoes, tomatoes) in each Australian state and territory.

This number is represented in thousands. The state with the highest production for human consumption is Victoria, at 682,803 tonnes. The state/territory with the lowest is the Australian Capital Territory at 0 tonnes.
