This FACT indicates the broadacre production in tonnes in each state and territory per annum from 2015/16. This number is represented in millions.
In Australia, broadacre is land suitable for farms practicing large-scale crop (agriculture) operations, and includes wheat, oats, barley, triticale, sorghum, rice, maize, other cereals, canola, other oilseeds, peanuts, other pulses, cotton lint, and sugar cane for crushing. Across Australia, these crops span 253,194 kilometres and above. The state with the highest production of broadacre is Queensland with 34,937,216 tonnes per annum. The state with the lowest is the Australian Capital Territory with 104 tonnes.
This FACT indicates the increase in percentage change of CPI (consumer price index) from September 2017 to December 2017 in each Australian city. CPI is used as a measure of inflation and consumer goods price differences. It provides insight into which Australian city is the most expensive, and especially how much prices have increased over a given time frame. The data shows that Hobart has the highest inflation of CPI at 1.007 percent. Whereas Darwin's CPI inflation is considerably lower at 0.274 percent, followed closely by Perth, 0.365 percent.
Australia is a country which is famously known to be a country, gird by seas. Much of the Australian lifestyle revolves around the sea with all of the cities within relatively close proximity to it. The coastal land is more fertile and arable than inland Australia, therefore we have been forced to move to the countrys' borders.
This FACT indicates the length of coastline in each Australian state per 1,000 persons. The Northern Territory has the longest coastline per 1,000 persons with 47.865 kilometers, whereas the ACT which has no ocean coastal region, but does border a lake has only 0.10 kilometers per 1,000 persons.
This FACT indicates the median personal weekly income of each capital city. Personal income is an individual’s total earnings from wages, investment interest, and other sources, and before deductions for tax, superannuation contributions, health insurance, salary sacrificed, or any other automatic deductions. The 2016 Census collected personal weekly income for all persons aged 15 years and over. People were asked to report the total of all their wages and salaries, government benefits, pensions, allowances and any other income they usually receive. The median has been utilised here as it gives a more accurate reflection of the overall data set, as it is not impacted by outliers (or figures that lie far outside of the regular data range). The city with the highest average personal weekly income is Darwin at A$1,052 per week and the lowest was Adelaide, with an average weekly income of A$617 per week.
This FACT indicates the percentage of each state's population that is currently undertaking a course for initial registration as a nurse. Nursing is a profession within the health care sector, and an integral profession in the establishment of healthy and prosperous communities.
Interestingly, the number of students studying to become a nurse is not influenced by the number of universities in each city, neither in hard numbers nor as a percentage of the population. Based on data from 2016, the Northern Territory has the highest percentage of domestic students undertaking a course for initial registration as a nurse, at 24.75 percent.
