This FACT indicates the total number of live music venues per 100,000 persons in each Australian state according to the Australasian Performing Right Association (APRA), as of September 2011.
The state with the highest proportion is South Australia, at 15 venues per 100,000 people. The state with the least is Tasmania, at 7.07 venues per 100,000 people.
This FACT indicates the number of people in Australian capitals who speak a Chinese language at home. While Mandarin and Cantonese are the most commonly known Chinese languages, there are many other regional dialects.
The number of people who speak Chinese languages at home offers insight into the number of first and second generation Chinese Australians living in a city, as well as the ethnic distribution within a city (that is, the assimilationof different cultures in multicultural neighbourhoods, as opposed to mono-cultural neighbourhoods).
Unsurprisingly, the city with the highest number of people who speak a Chinese language at home is Sydney, the city with the largest Chinese population, at 382,869. The city with the lowest is Darwin at 3,101, followed closely by Hobart at 3,674. This data was collected in the 2016 ABS Census.
This FACT indicates the total number of reported cases of sexual assault in each state, as a proportion of 100,000 persons. The Australian Bureau of Statistics has suggested that this data for the Northern Territory, Tasmania and the ACT be intepreted with caution as it has a relative standard error over 50%. The figure has been taken from cases where the victim is over 18 years of age only.
The state with the highest number of reported assaults in 2016-17 was the Northern Territory, with 706.21 cases per 100,000 persons. The state with the lowest was Tasmania, with 287.98 recorded cases per 100,000 persons.
This FACT indicates the cost of a 10km taxi trip between 6:00 and 18:59 (peak time) in each Australian city (Including Flagfall). 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 peak hour is Canberra, at $25.60 per 10km. The city with the cheapest fare is in Darwin at $19.80 per 10km.
