While many Australians drive into the CBD, do the costs of parking outweigh the convenience in some cities? While many assume taxis, for example, to be an unnecessary expense, using this mode of transport could indeed be cheaper than driving and parking in the CBD depending on where you live.
This FACT indicates the average cost of parking for four hours in a secure CBD parking garage in each Australian city. The city with the highest average price for four hour parking is Sydney at A$77. The city with the lowest price for four hour parking is Darwin at A$4.70. There is an obvious contrast between the two cities which raises discussions regarding the intent of policies.
This FACT indicates the proportion of fresh produce markets per 100,000 persons that operate within each Australian capital. A farmers' or produce market consists of individual vendors who set up stalls or stands, outdoors or indoors, to sell produce, meat products, fruits and, sometimes, prepared foods and beverages. The city with the highest number of fresh food markets is Darwin, at 4.385 per 100,000 persons. In comparison, the second highest is Hobart at 0.899. The city with the lowest proportion is Melbourne, with 0.111 fresh produce markets per 100,000.
The most common way energy is transmitted through a city is by overhead energy transmission network lines. A major benefit of overhead power lines is that it has much lower costs than undergroud transmission. Some of the disadvantages is that overhead transmission lines are likely to be affected by adverse weather conditions, which can lead to power outages.
This FACT indicates the total length of energy transmission networks (overhead lines) in kilometres in each state. This number is represented in thousands. The state with the largest amount is New South Wales at 254,601 km of overhead network lines. The state with the fewest thousands of kilometres is the Northern Territory at 5,167 km of network lines. The data is from the years 2014 to 2015.
This FACT indicates the number of days waited for patient admissions from waiting lists for Hysterectomy surgery in the 90th percentile. The 90th percentile means that 90 percent of the people admitted from waiting lists are admitted within and beyond 365 days. The other 10% are outliers and fall outside the range of the other 90 percent either above or below. This FACT is based on data collected by AIHW in 2016 and 2017. The state with the highest number of days waited for admissions from waiting lists for Hysterectomy surgery is Tasmania at 363 days. The state with the lowest number of days waited is Western Australia at 134 days.
This FACT indicates the percentage of the population in a de facto marriage in each city. A de facto relationship is considered a relationship in which two people who are not married or in a registered relationship live together as a couple. In Australia, there is no minimum time period before one is considered a part of a de facto relationship. In Australia, 10.4 percent of persons over the age of 15 are in such a relationship. According to the 2016 ABS Census, the city with the highest percentage of de facto relationships is Darwin, at 17.1 percent. The city with the lowest is Sydney with at 8.6 percent.
