While Australia is famous for its beaches, the waters off the Australian coast can be unforgiving, with large swell and strong rips. This FACT indicates the number of coastal drownings per 100,000 persons that occurred throughout 2016-2017 in each Australian state and territory. The highest number of drowning deaths per 100,000 persons occurred in Tasmania, at 1.57 per 100,000, the lowest being Victoria at 0.25 per 100,00.
This FACT indicates the annual domestic RPT (regular public transport) passenger movements at city airports for the year June 2016 to June 2017 (in millions). The data covers revenue paying passengers carried by Australian-registered operators of scheduled regular public transport services over Australian flight stages, including passengers carried between domestic airports on international flights operated by these carriers. Charter flights are not included in these statistics. From the data sourced, Sydney and Melbourne have the largest domestic passenger movements with 42.6 million and 34.9 million passengers respectively. Hobart and Darwin have the loswest domestic passenger movements at 2.1 million and 2.4 million passengers respectively.
This FACT indicates the total percentage of households with insulation installed in each capital city for the year 2014. Insulation is an effective measure in reducing energy usage in households, by reducing the need for heating and cooling.
This FACT indicates the total number of high schools and primary schools (from reception to year 12, though not necessarily encompassing all school years) that are currently operating within each Australian capital from the year 2018. The numbers include both government schools and non-government schools. Using the Australian Schools Directory, we found the total number of schools in each city's greater area. Unsuprisingly, Sydney and Melbourne - the two largest cities - have the most schools, at 1488 and 1375 respectively. Each Australian State and Territory oversees its own education system, and as such there are small variations between each state and territory's systems.
This FACT indicates the average Home Value Index (HVI) unit prices of each Australian city. The HVI aims to measure month to month movements in the value of Australian housing markets. These prices have been taken from the monthly values for the end of February 2018. The cheapest city in which to buy a unit is Darwin, significantly lower than Perth. A unit in Sydney, unsurprisingly, costs the most. This FACT is indicated in thousands of dollars.
