Interesting Facts

FTE Student/teaching staff ratio: Government secondary schools (Regional)

This FACT investigates the Full Time Equivalent (FTE)of student to teacher ratio.  It is theorised that teaching can only progress as the pace of the slowest learner therfore with a smaller ratio comes more individualised learning and attention and greater progress.  In general non-government schools have a lower ratio than government.

Number of abortion clinics (Regional)

This FACT indicates the total number of abortion clinics in each state. This data was found on the Children by Choice website in March 2018. While there is no guarantee as to accuracy, the data do offer insight into the sheer numbers, as well as offering interesting scope for discussion. The state with the most abortion clinics is Queensland with 27. The state with the least, is Tasmania (0).

*NOTE: Data for the ACT is included in figures for NSW.

Percentage of people who decreased personal water usage

This FACT indicates the percentage of people who decreased their personal water use. This information was sourced from the State of Australian Cities 2010 report.

A country plagued by extreme weather conditions and often experiencing high temperatures and drought, Australia is conscious of its water consumption. The introduction of water restrictions in urban areas have generated a greater awareness of water conservation in the community. These figures show that high proportions of households in most capital cities decreased their personal use of water over the 12 months from 2007-2008. 

This reduction has been achieved by the adoption of voluntary measures by households to reduce water use and install water-saving devices such as water-efficient shower-heads and dual-flush toilets. By the end of 2007, more than 80 per cent of Australian households had installed a dual-flush toilet an increase of 107 per cent from 1994. 

The city with the largest decrease in use was Brisbane with 75 percent. The city with the least was Hobart with 34 percent. (data for Canberra and Darwin could not be obtained.)

Total household water use per capita (Litres) (Regional)

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

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 per capita is the Northern Territory with 169,530 litres of water used per person. The state with the least water usage is Victoria with only 64,743 litres per person.

Traffic percentage delayed from free-flow conditions during peak-time congestion

This FACT indicates the percentage delay of traffic in congestion in comparison to free-flow conditions in Australian capital cities. Congestion during peak hours, specifically in the morning and evening rush periods from Monday to Friday often result in long delays for commuters. The city with the longest delay due to congestion is Sydney, at a staggering 31 percent extra travel time during peak time. The city with the shortest delay is Canberra, at 4 percent. This data was collected in 2016.
