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.
Which Australian state/territory has the highest proportion of 18-24 year olds within the normal weight range? Obesity and being overweight is a serious health problem in Australia, which is classified as one of the fattest nations in the developed world. The phenomenon has been described as an 'epidemic' because of how quickly Australian waistlines have expanded and thereby increased the chance and frequency of weight-related illnesses, such as disease and diabetes. Having a Body Mass Index (BMI) of 25.00 and above is classified as overweight by the Australian Bureau of Statistics. This FACT indicates the proportion of people within a normal weight range between the ages of 18-24 (BMI of 24.99 and under).
According to statistics for the years 2014 to 2015, the state with the highest proportion of 18-24 year olds who weigh within the normal range is South Australia at 66.8 percent.
This FACT indicates the percentage of single (or lone) person households in each Australian city. Results from the 2016 ABS Census show that the city with the highest percentage of single (or lone) person households is Darwin, at 22.6 percent. The city with the lowest percentage is Sydney, at 17 percent.
This FACT indicates the petroleum usage for residential per 100,000 persons (terajoules) in each Australian state. The state with the highest usage is Tasmania at 88.24 TJ per 100,000 person. The state with the lowest usage of petroleum is Victoria, at 48.09 TJ per 100,000 persons.

The National Assessment Program—Literacy and Numeracy (NAPLAN) tests are conducted in May for all students across Australia in Years 3, 5, 7 and 9. Each year, over one million students nationally sit the NAPLAN tests. All students in the same year level are assessed on the same test items in the assessment domains of reading, writing, language conventions (spelling, grammar and punctuation) and numeracy. NAPLAN data provide parents, schools, governments and the non-government school sectors with important information about whether young Australians are reaching educational goals.
This FACT indicates year 7 performance in numeracy at the end of the school year. It should be noted that for several states and territories, year 7 represents the end of primary school education.
