This FACT indicates the broadacre yield in each state and territory, measured in tonnes per hectare. For this indicator, broadacre yield includes all broadacre crops listed in Agricultural Commodities by the ABS 2017. It has been calculated by dividing the total yields by the total area of each states agricultural land.
In Australia, broadacre is land suitable for farms practicing large-scale crop (agriculture) operations, yet different soils, climates and crops affect the amount yielded.
The state with the highest yield is Queensland with 16.61 tonnes per hectare. The state with the lowest yield is Victoria with 1.21 tonnes per hectare. Data for the Australian Capital Territory and Northern Territory is considered by the Australian Bureau of Statistics to be unreliable. It is advised to use with caution.
Climate change and global warming are hot on the agenda of Australian politics. Individuals and businesses alike are becoming more attuned to the effects and costs of pollution and carbon emissions. This FACT indicates the amount in tonnes of greenhouse gas (carbon dioxide) emissions by solid fuels per 100,000 persons in each Australian state, as of 2015.
*Data for the ACT, Tasmania and the Northern Territory could not be obtained.
This FACT indicates the number of live music restaurant and cafe venues in each Australian state according to the Australasian Performing Right Association (APRA), as of September 2011.
The state with the highest number is, once again, Queensland, at 147 venues. The state with the least is the Australian Capital Territory, at 3 venues.
Australia's exotic - and sometimes vicious - wildlife is an oft cited characteristic of the island continent, with Australia's sharks taking a large portion of the conversations. Sharks, however, perhaps are more feared than what they deserve, since in the majority of states have very few recorded cases over the past 221 years.
This FACT indicates the total number of recorded unprovoked shark attack cases from 1791 to 2018, in each Australian state and territory. There is huge disparity in the numbers, with Queensland and New South Wales leading the tally by far. The Australian Capital Territory has a count of zero since it has no costal beaches.
This FACT indicates the number of adult entertainment (porn & sexual paraphernalia) shops per 100,000 persons within the greater metropolitan area of each Australian capital. Melbourne has the highest number of adult entertainment shops actual numbers, and also has the highest proportion per 100,000 at 14.74. The city with the lowest proportion of sex shops is Darwin, at 4.05 per 100,000 persons. The numbers presented here were sourced from Yellow Pages online listings for 2018. As it is possible that some businesses are not listed on the Yellow Pages these numbers act as a general guide to numbers rather than an absolute set of statistics.
