Interesting Facts

Number of divorced people per 100,000 persons

This FACT indicates the total number of divorces, as a proportion of 100,000 people, in each city. Results from the 2016 ABS Census show that the city with the highest number is Hobart, at 8,351 divorces per 100,000 people. The city with the lowest number of divorces is Melbourne, at 6,065 per 100,000 people.

Percentage of population who attended a performing arts event (Regional)

This FACT indicates the percentage of people who attended performing arts venues at least once between 2013 and 2014. Performing arts encompass a variety of performance forms, including theatre, music concerts, cabaret and variety shows. Visiting a performing arts venue, unlike most art galleries and museums, usually requires purchasing a ticket to attend a performance. These figures may therefore be influenced by an individual's amount of disposable income, as well as the variety and frequency of performances.

The ACT had the highest percentage of people attending performing arts venues with 64.2 percent of the population. Brisbane has the lowest attendance rate, at 48.5 percent. Interestingly, there seems to be no correlation between the states who attract big-name shows and the states with the highest attendance rate.

Percentage of single parent families

This FACT indicates the percentage of single parent families within each Australian city as a proportion of the total population. Based on statistics from the 2016 ABS Census, the Australian average for single parent families is 15.8 percent. The city with the highest percentage of single parent families is Hobart, with 18.7 percent. The city with the lowest is tied Canberra, at 13.8 percent.

Population weighted density of cities

Because of a relatively small population and urban sprawl, city density is much lower than what is experienced in other countries. Population density is measured by the number of people per square kilometres. While many argue that low density is a positive thing, it does impact other important quality-of-living factors, such as public transport services, social services and car dependency.

There are numerous ways of calculating urban density. Open space on the edge of the metropolitan areas can often skew densities. We have therefore searched for a more suitable approach. 'Charting Transport.com' have devised an approach that only includes populated areas.  Population weighted density is a weighted average of the density of all the parcels of land in the city, with the population of each parcel of land providing the weighting. This provides a figure indicative of the residential density of the “average person”. A city where a large proportion of people live in dense areas will have a much higher weighted population density than average population density. The data is based on 2011 census data.

The measure is Pop-weighted density, persons/ hectare (all SA1s)

Volume of sewer water collected per 100,000 persons (ML) (Regional)

This FACT indicates the volume of sewer water collected (megalitres) per 100,000 persons in each Australian state. These figures have been calculated by obtaining the total volume of sewer water collected in each state and divided by 100,000 people.
