Home ownership is highly sought after in Australia. This, coupled with a strong economy, suggests that selling a property in Australia is relatively straightforward. How long does it take to sell a house in each Australian capital city? This FACT indicates the average number of days that a house is on the market, according to RP Data for March 2018. It provides some insight into the demand of housing in each of the locations, and also raises questions regarding foreign investment and concentration of home ownership as a proportion of the population.
A hostel is a budget orientated form of accommodation where guests can stay in dormitories with other travellers, share bunk beds, have meals provided, and can live with minimal cost. It is regarded as more sociable than other types of accommodation, as it gives tourists an opportunity to meet fellow travellers. This FACT indicates the number of hostels available in each state per 1000 tourists. The state with the highest hostel to tourist ratio is Tasmania with 0.211 per 1000 tourists whereas the ACT and Victoria has the lowest tourist to hostel ratio with 0.024 hostels per 1000 tourists. This information reflects the figures for 2018, however, since it was extracted from a source that is susceptible to change on a regular basis (given that Booking.com it is a service for which accommodation venues are required to pay), the numbers should be taken as a guide only.

Sporting teams in this calculation included both male and female teams in the AFL, AFLW, NRL, BBL, WBBL, Sheffield Shield, NBL, WNBL, A-League, W-League, ABL, Super Rugby, NRC, and Suncrop Super Netball, including their predecessors. The state with the most professional titles won by their local teams per 100,000 is the ACT (1.761) and the lowest is Adelaide (0.298).
