This FACT indicates the proportion of new motor vehicle sales (not including motorbikes) that occured in 2017 per 100,000 people. While this can be deemed a burden in terms of the negative environmental impact, it is also an indicator of economic prosperity, and is therefore sorted from high to low.
The state/territory with the highest number of new car sales is Victoria, 5725.7 per 100,000 people. The state with the lowest is Tasmania with 3902.4 per 100,000 people. This is a rather predictable result since Hobart is the city with one of the lowest median household annual income.
This FACT indicates the percentage of people imprisoned for illicit drug offences as their most serious crime in each Australian state.
Low inner metro density in most Australian capital cities, and especially compared to large cities in North America or Europe, mean that many people have a lengthy commute to and from work. Because most Australians tend not to use bicycles, and public transport infrastructure is insufficient, the result is that many people are required to drive.
This data looks at the number of registered motor vehicles (including company owned vehicles) that are garaged or parked at or near private dwellings on census night. Trucks, motorbikes, scooters and tractors are excluded.
This FACT indicates the percentage of people in each Australian capital city using a car (as driver or passenger) to commute to and from work. The level of car dependency in Australian cities has increased significantly, with vehicle kilometres travelled growing faster than the population.
This FACT indicates State and Territory Government financial support for musical performances in their respective jurisdictions for 2012-2013. This indicator encompasses the performance of vocal and/or instrumental music and includes funding for the purpose of recording or for later broadcast. The figures are expressed as millions of dollars.
