This FACT indicates the number of cattle livestock in each state (represented in millions). Australia is one of the world's most efficient producers of cattle, and the world's second largest exporter of beef. The livestock industry represents a strong part of the national economy, with the off-farm meat value of Australia's beef valued at around A$12 billion. The gross value of Australian cattle and calf production is estimated at A$8 billion.
The state with the highest number of cattle livestock is Queensland, with 10,544,965 cows. The state with the lowest is the Australian Capital Territory, with 5,974 animals.
This FACT indicates the percentage of each city’s population that always recycle kitchen and food waste, or that use for it compost. Recycling organics is an effective way to reduce the amount of rubbish that goes into landfill, and help establish healthy green spaces in people's homes. A propensity to recycle food and kitchen scraps can offer insight into environmental practices of a community on the whole.
The city with the highest percentage is Canberra at 35 percent, followed closely by Adelaide at 33.5 percent. The city with the lowest percentage is Sydney at 21.5.
This FACT indicates the proportion of cattle livestock used for milk production in each state and territory. This is an important indicator, since dairy is Australia's third largest rural industry, and a major regional employer. The employment generated through the dairy industry is not limited to on-site farm work, but extends to processing, manufacturing and distribution of all dairy products. Australians are amongst the largest milk consumers per capital, as well as a top exporter of the product.
The state with the highest percentage in 2015-2016 is Victoria with 47.79 percent. The state with the lowest is the Australian Capital Territory with 0 percent.
Office space is amongst the most costly and inefficient to invest in. The grading system used by Knight Frank categorizes primary and secondary office space by the use of advanced valuation software, rigid reporting and quality review processes and by utilising global, national and local networks. While many small and medium enterprises (SMEs), as well as the increasing number of freelancers, are turning towards desk rental and shared office space, traditional offices are still an important part of company infrastructure, particularly in primary core (central) locations, as they help lend legitimacy to a businesses. This FACT indicates the average gross face office rent for premium core locations in Australian dollars per square metre per week in each Australian capital city's CBD.
*No data was available for Darwin and Hobart.
This FACT indicates the total yearly cost of petrol that a person would spend on travel to and from work in each Australian capital city. For this indicator, the distance travelled, as well as the average cost of ULP gas, affects the outcome. The total number of registered vehicles, the percentage of passenger vehicles, the amount of fuel consumed, and the distance travelled per vehicle on average were considered to determine the average fuel consumption of all passenger vehicles in Australia. The most common routes to work for each city were used from the Australian Railways Association to calculate the final cost of petrol for a yearly commute to work.
The numbers do not include costs for vehicle maintenance, registration, insurance, road tolls, or the social cost of congestion. When considering the above, it is evident that for many, using public transport would be a cheaper option. The size and age of family members however, plus access to public transport connections, make driving more convenient.
NOTE: Average commute distance to work not found for Darwin, so figure not given.
