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.

Commission a survey

Unlock the opinion of your target market.

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.

Featured Facts

Median personal weekly income

This FACT indicates the median personal weekly income of each capital city. Personal income is an individual’s total earnings from wages, investment interest, and other sources, and before deductions for tax, superannuation contributions, health insurance, salary sacrificed, or any other automatic deductions. The 2016 Census collected personal weekly income for all persons aged 15 years and over. People were asked to report the total of all their wages and salaries, government benefits, pensions, allowances and any other income they usually receive. The median has been utilised here as it gives a more accurate reflection of the overall data set, as it is not impacted by outliers (or figures that lie far outside of the regular data range). The city with the highest average personal weekly income is Darwin at A$1,052 per week and the lowest was Adelaide, with an average weekly income of A$617 per week.

Percentage of population with Australian ancestry living in each city

This FACT indicates the percentage of people in each capital city who consider themselves to have Australian ancestry. Overall, according to the most recent Australian Census conducted by the Australian Bureau of Statistics, 23.3 percent of Australia's population are of Australian ancestry, compared to 25 percent who have an English ancestry.
 
The city with the highest percentage of people of Australian ancestry is Hobart, at 30.1 percent. Sydney has the lowest, at 18.1 percent, followed closely by Melbourne, at 18.3 percent.
 

Teenage unemployment rate (Regional)

This FACT indicates the unemployment rate of teenagers aged between 15-19 years in each Australian state in 2017. There is no minimum number of hours worked to be considered employed. If a teenager is studying, they are considered 'employed', and so only those who are not completing secondary school or who are not enrolled in tertiary education, and do not have any form of part time or casual employment, are considered.

Total arts expenditure by state and territory governments (millions)(Regional)

This FACT reports on the total Arts expenditure by State and Territory Governments.  This combines support for art galleries, drama, dance, museums, musical performance and dance (to name a few) for the year 2012-2013. This is recorded in millions of dollars.

Total household water use (gigalitres) (Regional)

Australians are relatively conscious about water usage, and many households have employed measures to reduce their water consumption. This FACT indicates the total average water usage per household in gigalitres for each state between the years 2015 to 2016. 

Total household water consumption is calculated by combining the amount of water distributed to households by water providers with the amount extracted through bores and other self-extraction facilities. 'Self-extracted ' water use is calculated by applying a coefficient, based on average number of kilolitres used per household connection, to the households known not to be served by water providers. The state with the highest total water use is New South Wales with 561.78 gigalitres. The state with the least is the Australian Capital Territory with 31.27 gigalitres.
