This FACT indicates the number of fire incidents responded to by fire fighters in each Australian state. Australia has a long history of bushfires, with frequent occurances each year along its hot and dry landscape. While many native flora are dependent on the regenerative nature of bushfires, there are tendencies for the spread to affect highly populated areas resided by the Australian people. Of course there are more frequent causes of fires within the CBD that need to be responded to by firefighters including car and house fires.
This FACT indicates the number 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 total number of reported cases of sexual assault in each Australian state and territory. 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 cases in 2016-17 was New South Wales, with 31,300. The state with the lowest was the Northern Territory, with 1,000.
How much is spent on the construction of roads in each state, at all levels of government?

The state with the highest amount is New South Wales at A$8875.0 million. The state/territory with the lowest is the Australian Capital Territory at A$151.0 million. Suffice to say that the vast size difference of these states plays a significant role.
