This FACT indicates the average price of a combo meal deal (Big Mac Meal or similar) in a large fast-food chain in each state. This average price is based on a number of price points, ranging from 5 locations in Hobart to 67 locations in Sydney.
This FACT indicates the number of disability services and support organizations per 100,000 people in each Australian city. Services and support for people with disabilities are those government or other institutional services and supports specifically provided to enable people with disabilities to fully participate in society and community life. Some such services and support organisations are mandated or required by law, some are assisted by technologies that have made it easier to provide the service or support, and others are commercially available not only to persons with disabilities, but to everyone who might make use of them. The data for this indicator was collected by looking at the Yellow Pages online directory (for 2018). Although the Yellow Pages is not the most accurate source of data, it is still able to provide an estimated value. The city with the highest number of disability services and support organisations was Canberra, at 57.64 per 100,000 people. The city with the lowest was Brisbane, at 11.14 per 100,000 people.
This FACT indicates the Number of certified & registered green star rated projects in each state and territory. Green Star is a national, voluntary environmental rating system that evaluates the environmental design and construction of buildings. According to the Green Star website, the system was devised for use in the property industry, and to create a common set of criteria and standards for measuring the level of 'environmental friendliness' of buildings. A Green Star award recognises leadership in green design and development in the building industry, and promotes awareness and sustainable practices.
As of March 2018, 1758 certified projects and 572 registered projects have been awarded Green Star status. The state with the highest number of green rated buildings is Victoria with 349, followed closely by New South Wales with 320. The state/territory with the least is the Northern Territory with 10.
How many hospitals service the entire populations of each Australian state? While New South Wales has the most hospitals in hard numbers, there are more facilities per person in Tasmania: this FACT indicates the proportion of hospitals per 100,000 persons that are located in each Australian state.
Here, both public and private hospitals were counted, as well as all special facility hospitals and represent the numbers for 2015-2016. Hospitals are usually funded by the public sector, by health organizations (for profit or non profit), health insurance companies, or charities, including direct charitable donations.
The Australian state/territory with the highest number of hospitals per 100,000 people is South Australia, at 7.93. The state/territory with the lowest is the Australian Capital Territory at 2.01 hospitals per 100,000 persons.
This FACT indicates the percentage of secondary students that complete their year 12 studies across each state from the year 2017. Within Australia, Year 12 attainment is regarded as a key factor in the formal development of an individual's skills and knowledge. Those who have completed Year 12 have a greater likelihood of continuing with further study, particularly in tertiary education, as well as entering into the workforce.
This indicator was sourced from the Australian Bureau of Statistics website which outlines the year 12 attainment percentage of each city in the year 2017. From these statistics, high school students in the Australian Capital Territory were found to have the highest completion rate at 84.9 percent. The Northern Territory had the lowest completion rate, at 63.1 percent.
