This FACT indicates the education participation rate of those aged between 15 and 24 years of age in each Australian state from the year 2017. Data for this indicator were collected from the 2017 ABS Survey of Education and Work. The data shows that young people from the ACT have the highest participation rate in educational institutions, at 71.48 percent. The lowest percentile was found in Tasmania, at 56.55 percent, closely followed by Queensland, at 56.83.
Home ownership is an important part of the Australian Dream, but how many have actually realised it? This FACT indicates the percentage of privately owned dwellings with a mortgage in each Australian capital city. Just over one third (34.5 percent) of occupied dwellings in Australia are owned with a mortgage. In 2016, the city with the highest percentage was Perth, at 41.9 percent. The city with the lowest was Sydney at 33.2 percent.
This FACT indicates the petroleum usage for manufacturing per 100,000 persons (petajoules) in each Australian state and territory. The state with the highest usage is Victoria, at 1.583 GL per 100,000 persons. The state with the lowest usage is South Australia, at 0.128 GL per 100,000 persons.
*Data for the ACT could not be obtained.
This FACT indicates the number of road fatalities that occured per 100,000 persons in each Australian state in 2016. The definition of a road-traffic fatality varies from country to country. The definition used in Australia is a person who dies within 30 days of a crash on a public road involving a vehicle with an engine, and the death being the result of the crash. The road fatality rate is different from the fatal road accident rate, as multiple persons may incur fatal injuries in one single car accident. The state with the highest number is the Northern Territory at 19.66 per 100,000 people. The state with the lowest is the Australian Capital Territory at 2.26 per 100,000 people.
This FACT indicates the cost of a 10km taxi trip between 19:00 and 5:59 (off peak) in each Australian city. Due to a nation-wide crackdown on drink driving, coupled with relatively few public transport options and connections, taxis are, for many, the only viable transport option for a night out. Based on results from taxifare.com.au in 2018 using the taxi fare calculator, the city with the highest fare during off-peak hours is Sydney, at $29.90 per 10km. The city with the lowest is Melbourne at $23.24 per 10km.
