How much does it cost to rent an apartment in Australia? Unsurprisingly, this number varies dramatically depending size and suburb, and there is also great disparity between cities. This FACT indicates the median rental rate for a unit (or apartment) in each Australian capital city. The median has been utilised as it gives a more accurate reflection of the overall data set. The median value is the middle price in a series of sales, where half of the sales are of lower value and half are of higher value. Here, all sizes of units have been considered. The data represents statistics for February 2018. In Australia, rent and mortgage repayments are generally calculated in weekly instalments, and so the data here represents weekly repayments.
This data suggests that Sydney-siders pay more for apartments, which is likely influenced by the high cost and demand of real estate (apartments) in the CBD. The cheapest rental unit rates in are in Adelaide, coinciding with the rental housing data.
Which is Australia's real gourmet destination? This FACT indicates the proportion of acclaimed restaurants in each state and territory by 100,000 people, where acclaimed restaurants are defined by an allocation of 12 to 20 Chef Hats awarded by the Australian Good Food Guide in 2018. The criterion for selection includes both the facilities and services of each establishment. While there are other sources of restaurant ratings, for example those in guidebooks, newspapers, lifestyle magazines and online forums, criteria for these reviews differ greatly and they are therefore less reliable for statistical analysis.
According to the Australian Good Food Guide, the state with the highest number of quality restaurants per 100,000 people is Tasmania, with 3.334. The state with the lowest is the Northern Territory, with only 0.874.
This FACT indicates the total number public psychiatric hospitals that are located in each Australian state. Psychiatric hospitals, also known as mental hospitals, specialize in the treatment of serious mental disorders. Psychiatric hospitals vary widely in their size and grading. Some hospitals may specialise only in short-term or outpatient therapy for low-risk patients. Others may specialise in the temporary or permanent care of residents who, as a result of a psychological disorder, require routine assistance, treatment, or a specialised and controlled environment. Patients are often admitted on a voluntary basis, but involuntary commitment is practiced when an individual may pose a significant danger to themselves or others. The state with the highest number is New South Wales with 8. The state with the lowest is shared between ACT and NT, each with 0.
This FACT indicates the percentage of year 5 students at or above the national minimum standard in each state and territory, according to preliminary NAPLAN results collected in 2017.
This FACT indicates the total number of reported cases of sexual assault in each Australian state and territory. The Australian Bureau of Statistics has suggested that this data for the Northern Territory, Tasmania and the ACT be intepreted with caution as it has a relative standard error over 50%. The figure has been taken from cases where the victim is over 18 years of age only.
The state with the highest number of reported cases in 2016-17 was New South Wales, with 31,300. The state with the lowest was the Northern Territory, with 1,000.
