This FACT indicates the number of deaths in each Australian state per 1,000 persons. Standardised death rates (SDRs) enable the comparison of death rates between populations with different age structures by relating them to a standard population. The current standard population is all persons in the estimated Australian population at 30 June 2016. SDRs are expressed per 1,000 persons.
The state/territory with the highest SDR’s in the Northen Territory, at 7.3 deaths per 1,000 persons. The ACT has lowests SDR at 4.7 deaths per 1,000 person, which is below the National average of 5.4 deaths per 1,000 persons.
This FACT indicates the victims of household motor vehicle theft as a percentage of each state's population. There were around 60,900 motor vehicles stolen in 2016-17 alone. According to the Australian Institute of Criminology, the majority of thefts are carried out by young, opportunistic thieves, who are responsible for every 3 out of 4 cars stolen. It is estimated that vehicle theft costs the community AUD 1 billion each year, and so reducing Australia’s vehicle theft rate is high on the agenda for all tiers of government. The Australian Institute of Criminology has collected useful resources on the subject which supplements its own research. The state/territory with the highest percentage is the Northern Territory, at 1.1 percent. The state with the lowest theft rate is South Australia, at 0.3 percent.
Number of admissions from waiting lists for plastic and reconstructive surgery per 100,000 persons (Regional)
This FACT indicates the number of admissions from waiting lists for plastic surgery per 100,000 persons in each state between 2016 and 2017. Hospital admissions for elective surgery in Australia have increased over the last few years by as much as 2% each year on average. The state/territory with the highest admission per 100,000 persons is Tasmania at 383.36. The state/territory with the lowest is New South Wales at 130.91
This FACT indicates the percentage 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.
This FACT indicates the percentage of people in each Australian capital city with an ancestry other than English or Australian. According to 2016 ABS Census, the city with the highest percentage of non- English or Australian ancestry is Sydney, at 62.5 percent; almost two thirds of the city's population. The population with the lowest non-English or Australian ancestry is Hobart, significantly lower at 37.2 percent. Adelaide and Hobart are the only two cities with a population consisting of majority Australian and English ancestry. A significant difference from the 2011 Census, in which all cities had a population consisting of majority English or Australian ancestry.
