Australia has a reputation as an expensive destination - and many locals will agree. As one of the world's highest consumers of beer per capita, the price of beer has always been a hot topic. While the consumption of beer across the country has dipped in recent months, with consumers opting for wine, the indicator is none the less an important one.
This FACT indicates the average cost of a pint of beer at a neighbourhood bar or pub in each Australian capital city. Each city's score is based on prices entered by users on Expatistan.com, the score is then based on the average. For this reason, and given the quality of nature of this data set, the numbers should be used with caution.
This FACT indicates the number of admissions from waiting lists for elective surgery per 100,000 persons in each state between 2016 and 2017. The values given are from a select group of hospitals from each state and do not represent the total number of admissions from every hospital in each state. The state/territory with the highest admission per 100,000 persons is Tasmania, at 3762. The state/territory with the lowest is New South Wales at 2980.
This FACT indicates the number of days waited for patient admissions from waiting lists for Hysterectomy surgery in the 90th percentile. The 90th percentile means that 90 percent of the people admitted from waiting lists are admitted within and beyond 365 days. The other 10% are outliers and fall outside the range of the other 90 percent either above or below. This FACT is based on data collected by AIHW in 2016 and 2017. The state with the highest number of days waited for admissions from waiting lists for Hysterectomy surgery is Tasmania at 363 days. The state with the lowest number of days waited is Western Australia at 134 days.
This FACT indicates the number of Australians who speak Arabic at home per 100,000 persons, in each capital. Arabic is the fifth-most commonly spoken language in the world, and is spoken most widely in Northern Africa, the Middle East, and East Africa.
Given the increase in migration from these regions to Australia over the past decade, the number of people who speak Arabic at home has increased. However, this number is still significantly lower than other major languages spoken in Australia, namely Chinese languages, Indo-Aryan languages, Vietnamese, Italian, and Greek, to name a few.
Results form the 2016 Census show that the city with the highest number of people who speak Arabic at home is Sydney, at 3,985 per 100,000 persons. The city with the lowest number is Darwin, at 198 per 100,000 persons.
This FACT indicates the petroleum usage for manufacturing per 100,000 persons (petajoules) in each Australian state and territory. The state with the highest usage is Victoria, at 1.583 GL per 100,000 persons. The state with the lowest usage is South Australia, at 0.128 GL per 100,000 persons.
