This FACT indicates the percentage of people that never compost or recycle garden waste in each city. Garden waste can be recycled for use in potting mix and compost for public gardens and council-run green space. Recycling organics can be encouraged by councils by providing a garden waste recycling scheme, including organic bins.
The city with the highest rate of people who never recycle is Brisbane at 30.5 percent of the population. The city with the lowest rate is Adelaide at 10 percent of the population. This shows that Adelaide is well known for being sustainable.
This FACT indicates the number of international airlines that fly in and out of each major Australian city airport, from the year 2018. The data for this indicator was found by looking for a list of international airlines on each of the major airport’s websites. According to the data, Sydney has the most international airlines passing through its airport at 50, a huge disparity from Hobart, the lowest at 1.
This FACT also appears in the Connectivity and Transport category.
This FACT indicates the proportion of public psychiatric hospitals per 100,000 people in each Australian state. Psychiatric hospitals, also known as mental hospitals, are hospitals specializing in the treatment of serious mental disorders.
They comprise an important part of the state and federal healthcare budget. The state with the highest number of these types of facilities is Western Australia, with 0.121 per 100,000 people. The state with the lowest is tied between the ACT, the NT, and Tasmania with 0 per 100,000 people each.
This FACT indicates the percentage of persons aged 15 years and over who’s social marital status is listed as being in a registered marriage, in each capital city. On average, 47.7 percent of Australia's population are in a registered marriage. These statistics were taken from the 2016 ABS Census and excludes de facto status relationships and marriages.
The two cities that are tied with the highest percent of married persons is Perth and Sydney, with 48.5 percent. The least-wedded capital is Darwin, at 42.9 percent.
This FACT indicates the percentage of each capital city's population that have rain water tanks installed in their home. A rainwater tank is a container for storing captured water. In Australia, a country prone to drought drought, a rainwater tank can provide relief on the mains (or city's) water supplies, or supplement mains water usage for drinking water, irrigation agriculture, fire suppression, agricultural farming, chemical manufacturing, and food preparation, to name a few.
Water tanks are a viable solution to combating the ever increasing water problems Australia faces, and for this reason, many states now require that new dwellings, and some extensions to existing dwellings, include a rainwater tank in their plans. The state with the highest percentage of people with rainwater tanks from 2013 is in Brisbane at 47 percent, followed closely by Adelaide at 45 percent. The state with the lowest is Perth with 9 percent. (data for Canberra and Darwin could not be obtained.)
