This FACT indicates the proportion of diagnosed syphilis cases per 100,000 people in Australian states and territories. Syphilis is a sexually transmitted infection caused by the spirochete bacterium Treponema pallidum subspecies pallidum. The primary route of transmission is through sexual contact; it may also be transmitted from mother to foetus during pregnancy or at birth, resulting in congenital syphilis. Other human diseases caused by related Treponema pallidum include Yaws, Pinta, and Bejel. The signs and symptoms of syphilis vary depending on which of the four stages it presents (primary, secondary, latent, and tertiary).
The numbers here represent the statistics for 2011. The State/Territory with the most cases is the Northern Territory with 13.9 per 100,000 people. The state with the least cases is Tasmania with 0.6 per 100,000 people.
The most common way energy is transmitted through a city is by overhead energy transmission network lines. A major benefit of overhead power lines is that it has much lower costs than undergroud transmission. Some of the disadvantages is that overhead transmission lines are likely to be affected by adverse weather conditions, which can lead to power outages.
This FACT indicates the total length of energy transmission networks (overhead lines) in kilometres in each state. This number is represented in thousands. The state with the largest amount is New South Wales at 254,601 km of overhead network lines. The state with the fewest thousands of kilometres is the Northern Territory at 5,167 km of network lines. The data is from the years 2014 to 2015.
This FACT indicates the total number of abortion clinics in each state. This data was found on the Children by Choice website in March 2018.

The state with the most abortion clinics is Queensland with 27. The state with the least, is Tasmania (0).
*NOTE: Data for the ACT is included in figures for NSW.
This FACT indicates the total number of additional dwellings that were built* in each Australian city during the period between 2011-2016. It gives some insight into the housing development rate in each city, as well as the amount of property investment. The numbers are represented in thousands.
In the five years up to 2016, Melbourne had the most developments in housing, at 169,810 new dwellings built. Hobart has the lowest residential development in the same period, with 3,200 new dwellings built.
This FACT indicates the number of people with a bachelor’s degree qualification who are male in each capital.
