Australia has a reputation as an expensive destination - and many locals will agree. As one of the world's highest consumers of beer per capita, the price of beer has always been a hot topic. While the consumption of beer across the country has dipped in recent months, with consumers opting for wine, the indicator is none the less an important one.
This FACT indicates the average cost of a pint of beer at a neighbourhood bar or pub in each Australian capital city. Each city's score is based on prices entered by users on Expatistan.com, the score is then based on the average. For this reason, and given the quality of nature of this data set, the numbers should be used with caution.
This FACT indicates the number of live music attendances per capita, according to the Australasian Performing Right Association (APRA) as of 2014.
Live music and bar venues provide entertainment to audiences, but also a stage for the creative growth and development of a community, encouraging cultural and entertainment markets. New South Wales and Western Australia have the equal most attendances per capita, at 2.17. The state with the least is Tasmania with 1.84.
This FACT indicates the number of green star rated projects as a proportion of 100,000 people which operate within the respective Australian states.
A Green Star project is one that has been certified under the Green Building Council of Australia (GBCA). The GBCA's Green Star rating system is awarded to projects that have been implemented with the aim of reducing their environmental impact. The project can be a building, a number of buildings, or a fit-out. The certification is given to both new projects and projects that have undergone extensive renovations. In real numbers, Victoria and New South Wales would certainly have the most green-star rated projects, according to the GBCA. Comparing the number of green-star projects against the population, however, shows that the Australian Capital Territory has the most green-star rated projects, at 14.34 per 100,000 people.
This FACT indicates the number of fire incidents responded to by fire fighters in each Australian state. Australia has a long history of bushfires, with frequent occurances each year along its hot and dry landscape. While many native flora are dependent on the regenerative nature of bushfires, there are tendencies for the spread to affect highly populated areas resided by the Australian people. Of course there are more frequent causes of fires within the CBD that need to be responded to by firefighters including car and house fires.
This FACT indicates the number of people in each city 15 years and over who have a certificate level education per 100,000 persons. Technical and Further Education (TAFE) institutions are most often the place in which students complete their vocational education and training (VET). TAFE courses are often short with certificates, diplomas and advanced diplomas also being offered. Some TAFE institutions also offer High Education courses. Accredited qualifications that can be gained at TAFE include business management, community services, hospitality, beauty and fitness amongst other courses. The city with the highest proportion of people with a certificate level education is Darwin, at 17795 per 100,000 persons. Canberra has the least at 11271 per 100,000 persons.
