This FACT indicates the proportion of diagnosed chlamydia cases per 100,000 people in each Australian state and territory. Chlamydia infection (from the Greek, χλαμýδα meaning 'cloak') is a common sexually transmitted infection (STI) in humans caused by the bacterium Chlamydia trachomatis. Of course, only diagnosed cases can be counted, and therefore the statistics should be taken with caution as true numbers are likely to be higher. Nonetheless, there is a wide difference between cities that are ranked first and last, by number of cases as a proportion of population. Chlamydia is spread partly due to lack of education and knowledge about the infection, which is treatable and curable.
These numbers represent the statistics for 2010. The territory with the most diagnosed cases is the Northern Territory with 1161.2 per 100,000 people. The state with the least is New South Wales with 280.5 per 100,000 people.
This FACT indicates the median personal weekly income of each capital city. Personal income is an individual’s total earnings from wages, investment interest, and other sources, and before deductions for tax, superannuation contributions, health insurance, salary sacrificed, or any other automatic deductions. The 2016 Census collected personal weekly income for all persons aged 15 years and over. People were asked to report the total of all their wages and salaries, government benefits, pensions, allowances and any other income they usually receive. The median has been utilised here as it gives a more accurate reflection of the overall data set, as it is not impacted by outliers (or figures that lie far outside of the regular data range). The city with the highest average personal weekly income is Darwin at A$1,052 per week and the lowest was Adelaide, with an average weekly income of A$617 per week.
This FACT indicates the number of universities in each state, per 100,000 people (expressed as a ratio) from the year 2016. The state with the largest number of universities per 100,000 people is the Northern Territory, at 0.87 universities. The state with the smallest number is New South Wales, at 0.13 per 100,000 each.
Urban public transport is an important part of the transport task, and effective public transport systems provide benefits for individuals and the community as a whole. This FACT indicates the total number of passenger kilometres travelled (in billions) modelled for 2031.
