This FACT indicates the proportion of diagnosed gonorrhoea cases per 100,000 people in each Australian state and territory. Gonorrhoea (colloquially known as the clap) is a common human sexually transmitted infection caused by the bacterium Neisseria gonorrhoeae. The usual symptoms in men are burning with urination and penile discharge. Women, on the other hand, are often asymptomatic or otherwise experience vaginal discharge and pelvic pain.
In both men and women, if gonorrhoea is left untreated, it may spread locally causing epididymitis or pelvic inflammatory disease which can spread throughout the body, affecting joints and heart valves. Education about the disease is an effective prevention measure. The numbers here represent the statistics for 2010.
The territory with the most diagnosed cases of gonorrhoea is the Northern Territory, at 863 per 100,000 people. The state with the least cases is Tasmania, at 3.7 per 100,000 people.
This FACT indicates the electricity usage for manufacturing per 100,000 persons (gigawatt/hr) in each Australian state and territory. The state with the highest usage is Tasmania with 1213.6 GW/hr per 100,000 people. The state with the lowest is the Northern Territory with 54.6 GW/hr per 100,000 people.

A food truck is basically a mobile kitchen that transports and sells food to customers, most commonly located in the CBD of a city. A typical example would be the old fashioned ice cream truck or pie cart, that most people would associate the selling of food from a mobile truck. Since the influx of American style food and food culture in Australia, the Texan style ‘Chuck Wagon’ have been erecting all throughout some Australian capital cities. Although a higher proportion of food trucks now serve American style burgers, hot dogs and fries, there are still many Mexican, South American, Asian and Dessert style food carts trailing each city.
An Honourable mention would also have to go Adelaide’s pie cart movement in the late 1800’s, which made the traditional “Pie-Floater” world famous today, with approximately 13 pie carts operating in the CBD in the 1870’s.
This FACT indicates the number of food trucks that have operated in each capital city over the last 2 months, and are registered online at ‘WhereTheTruck.At’ in March 2018. Melbourne has easily the highest number of food trucks, at 251. Canberra scored the lowest at 0. Each has not had any operating food trucks within the last 2 months, as registered by ‘WhereTheTruck.At’.
*The data is based solely on food trucks registered with ‘WhereTheTruck.At’ and active within the last 2 months. This does not have any relation to the total amount of food truck licences awarded by each city’s council, currently used in each city.
This FACT indicates the total domestic freight, in tonnes, of product per kilometres moved by all freight modes (road, rail and shipping) per state. This number is represented in billions.
In its broadest sense, freight transport describes the movement of physical items between locations. A summary of freight statistics is provided classified by mode of transport. Freight is further classified into bulk and non-bulk segments. Two measures of freight transport are currently provided in the framework: the weight of freight moved in Australia (measured in millions of tonnes) and distance moved (measured in tonne kilometres, the transport task performed in moving one tonne of freight one kilometre). The state with the highest number is Western Australia with 235.7 billion tonnes per km. The state/territory with the lowest was ACT with 0.3 billion tonnes per km. It is worth mentioning that the small area of the ACT would be a key aspect in understanding this result.
Australia is one of the biggest exporters of wine in the world, with approximately 747 million litres of wine exported internationally each year. This means that more Australian wine is consumed overseas rather than in Australia. The Australian wine industry is therefore vital to Australia’s economy, particularly for reasons such as production, employment, export and tourism.
This FACT indicates the dollar value made from the international export of wines by each Australian state and territory from the years 2010 to 2011. The values here are represented in thousands (000’s). The state with the highest amount of value made from the international export of wines is South Australia, at A$1.2 Billion a year. The Australian Capital Territory and Northern Territory ranked the lowest at a combined value of A$50,000.
In this instance, the Australian Bureau of Statistics has combined the data for both territories and it was not possible to gain individual statistics, thus both have been recorded as zero.
