This FACT indicates the average amount of rainfall in each Australian capital city during winter. In wintertime, the regions that are usually very dry for the remainder of the year, experience heavier rainfall than usual. From June to August, Sydney, Perth and Adelaide (the southernmost cities with the exception of Hobart), which are the driest in summer, are the wettest in winter due to the southern cold troughs bringing a cool change and rain. All of the tropical cities experience less rainfall in this season due to the El Nino weather system that instigates a cool water change, as the winds bring the warm water to the other side of the Pacific.
This FACT indicates how many people use trucks to commute to work as a proportion of 100,000 persons in each Australian capital city. This data represents the numbers for 2016. The city with the highest number is Sydney at 674 per 100,000 people. The state with the lowest is Canberra, at 347 per 100,000 people.
This FACT indicates the total number of reported cases of sexual assault in each state, as a proportion of 100,000 persons. The Australian Bureau of Statistics has suggested that this data for the Northern Territory, Tasmania and the ACT be intepreted with caution as it has a relative standard error over 50%. The figure has been taken from cases where the victim is over 18 years of age only.
The state with the highest number of reported assaults in 2016-17 was the Northern Territory, with 706.21 cases per 100,000 persons. The state with the lowest was Tasmania, with 287.98 recorded cases per 100,000 persons.
The value of exported sea freight is not only an indicator of a state's economy but also the level of connectivity with other nations. The value of international freight is expressed in billions of dollars.
This FACT indicates the amount of state water supply sourced from surface water per 100,000 persons (megalitres) in each Australian state. These figures have been calculated by taking the total volume of water sourced from surface water in each state and expressing it as a proportion of 100,000.
