Number of admissions from waiting lists for plastic and reconstructive surgery per 100,000 persons (Regional)
This FACT indicates the number of admissions from waiting lists for plastic surgery per 100,000 persons in each state between 2016 and 2017. Hospital admissions for elective surgery in Australia have increased over the last few years by as much as 2% each year on average. The state/territory with the highest admission per 100,000 persons is Tasmania at 383.36. The state/territory with the lowest is New South Wales at 130.91
Given that the Commonwealth of Australia was colonized by Britain in the late 18th century, it is no surprise that there is a large percentage of the Australian population who have British ancestry. However, the largest wave of British immigrants settled in Australia in the 18th and mid-19th centuries. Since then, immigration in Australia is much more diverse. This trend was sparked by the first big wave of European and Asian immigrants during the gold rush of the 1850s. Today, migration procedures have become stricter and international political circumstances are different, which has created a change in immigration patterns around the world. The percentage of people who presently immigrate from the United Kingdom is therefore far less than in former times, and certainly does not represent the number of Australians with British ancestry.
This FACT indicates the number of people born in the United Kingdom per 100,000 persons in each Australian city. According to the results of the 2016 Census, the city with the highest proportion of UK Born people is Perth, at 10,251 per 100,000. The city with the least is Melbourne, at 3,599 per 100,000.
Australia is home to around 140 species of land snakes, and 21 of the world's 25 most venomous species call the island continent home. For people with ophidiophobia, this can be a serious point of concern. Indeed, many tourists fret over Australia's snake population, despite the fact that snakes are rarely found in suburban and city areas. Luckily, most of the world's snakes - Australian species being no exception - prefer to avoid humans, and for this reason, reported snake bites are quite rare. In fact, most snake bites are provoked, so leaving a snake alone is the best repellent.
This FACT indicates the number of top 25 most venomous snake species that are present with each state and territory.
This FACT indicates the total number of universities that are located within each Australian state and territory, from the year 2016. The state with the most universities is New South Wales with 10. The state with the least is Tasmania with 1.
This FACT indicates the percentage of secondary students that complete their year 12 studies across each state from the year 2017. Within Australia, Year 12 attainment is regarded as a key factor in the formal development of an individual's skills and knowledge. Those who have completed Year 12 have a greater likelihood of continuing with further study, particularly in tertiary education, as well as entering into the workforce.
This indicator was sourced from the Australian Bureau of Statistics website which outlines the year 12 attainment percentage of each city in the year 2017. From these statistics, high school students in the Australian Capital Territory were found to have the highest completion rate at 84.9 percent. The Northern Territory had the lowest completion rate, at 63.1 percent.
