This FACT indicates the total number of Aussie Rules Football Clubs in each state per 100,000 persons. Which state takes its footy most seriously? The origins of this sport are obscure and often debated, with the Melbourne Football Club first publishing the laws of the game in 1859, when it became and organized sport. Aussie Rules has the highest spectator attendance of all sports in Australia and is also widely played at the amateur level.
This FACT indicates the number of Aussie Rules Football Clubs in each state or territory. Based on numbers from 2018, the Northern Territory takes the lead, at 24.91 clubs per 100,000 persons. Queensland has the least, at 1.34 clubs per 100,000. The data here are in keeping with the fact that the Southern end of Australia follows AFL, whereas the northern states are more concerned with NRL.
This FACT indicates the number of people in each city 15 years and over who have a certificate level education. 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 by far Sydney, with 590,685 persons. Canberra has the least at 22,095 persons.
This FACT indicates the number of special schools in each city per 100,000 persons, including those schools with annexes providing special needs facilities. These numbers exclude English learning centres, distance education and schools for young mothers. The education of students with special needs involves individually planned teaching methods, modified equipment and materials, and settings that are more accessible. If students with special needs are to achieve the same levels of education and success as a student that would have be educated in a typical classroom setting, these extra measures are necessary.
