Interesting Facts

Number of days waited for admissions from waiting lists for Prostatectomy surgery (Regional)

This FACT indicates the number of days waited for patient admissions from waiting lists for Prostatectomy surgery in the 90th percentile in each state. The 90th percentile means that 90 percent of the people admitted from waiting lists are admitted within and beyond 365 days. The other 10% are outliers and fall outside the range of the other 90 percent either above or below. 

Number of people travelling to work by truck per 100,000 persons

This FACT indicates how many people use trucks to commute to work as a proportion of 100,000 persons in each Australian capital city. This data represents the numbers for 2016. The city with the highest number is Sydney at 674 per 100,000 people. The state with the lowest is Canberra, at 347 per 100,000 people.

Percentage of population travelling to work by car

Low inner metro density in most Australian capital cities, and especially compared to large cities in North America or Europe, mean that many people have a lengthy commute to and from work. Because most Australians tend not to use bicycles, and public transport infrastructure is insufficient, the result is that many people are required to drive.    

This data looks at the number of registered motor vehicles (including company owned vehicles) that are garaged or parked at or near private dwellings on census night. Trucks, motorbikes, scooters and tractors are excluded.

This FACT indicates the percentage of people in each Australian capital city using a car (as driver or passenger) to commute to and from work. The level of car dependency in Australian cities has increased significantly, with vehicle kilometres travelled growing faster than the population.

Proportion of households with rainwater tanks

This FACT indicates the percentage of each capital city's population that have rain water tanks installed in their home. A rainwater tank is a container for storing captured water. In Australia, a country prone to drought drought, a rainwater tank can provide relief on the mains (or city's) water supplies, or supplement mains water usage for drinking water, irrigation agriculture, fire suppression, agricultural farming, chemical manufacturing, and food preparation, to name a few. 

Water tanks are a viable solution to combating the ever increasing water problems Australia faces, and for this reason, many states now require that new dwellings, and some extensions to existing dwellings, include a rainwater tank in their plans. The state with the highest percentage of people with rainwater tanks from 2013 is in Brisbane at 47 percent, followed closely by Adelaide at 45 percent. The state with the lowest is Perth with 9 percent. (data for Canberra and Darwin could not be obtained.)

Rio Olympic medallists per 100,000 persons

This FACT indicates the number of 2016 Rio Olympic Medallists per 100,000 persons who were born within the greater metropolitan area of each respective city. Australia won a total of 29 medals, 8 gold, 11 silver and 10 bronze at the Rio 2016 Olympic Games. The city with the highest amount of gold medallists per 100,000 was Adelaide with 0.386 medals per 100,000, confirming its position as a sporting powerhouse. The city with the lowest was Perth, with 0.051 people per 100,000. Canberra, Darwin, and Hobart did not qualify as they had no medallists born within their greater metropolitan area.
