This FACT indicates the number of available jobs as of March 28th 2018 on seek.com, in each Australian capital city. Seek, an online job search platform, claims to be Australia's largest and most visited. While not every available job will be listed on the platform, the numbers do provide some insight into the nature of local economies, and the competition individuals face when applying for a job in each capital city. It helps to answer the question: how easy is it to find a job in Australia? However, it is worth noting that mainly professional positions (that is, jobs for which higher training is required) are listed, whereas less professional and casual jobs tend to be listed on different sites, or not at all.
Is public transport or a taxi sometimes the best bet? Australia's car dependency is placing a lot of stress on the environment and the broader economy, but it is also negatively effecting people's personal finances. This data here was collected by Parkopedia in 2018.
This FACT indicates the average cost of parking for eight hours in a secure CBD parking garage in each Australian city. The city with the highest average price is Sydney with A$56.70; a huge saving on the average 2 hours payable by motorists. Darwin is again the lowest, at A$3.50 for 8 hours.
This FACT indicates the proportion of overseas students that are enrolled at university, per the number of universities within each Australian state, for the year 2016. This number is represented in thousands.
According to the Organization of Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD), international students are those who travel to a country different from their own for the purpose of tertiary study. Despite this, the definition of an international student varies in each country according to their national education system. The state with the highest number of international students per number of universities is Victoria, at 15,730. The state with the lowest is the Northern Territory at 2,630.
*International students that are enrolled with private providers have been added to this count, however, only the number of university institutions have been used to standardise the data.
This FACT indicates the total number of hospitals located in each Australian state and territory. A hospital is a health care institution providing patient treatment by specialized staff and equipment. Here, all specialised treatment hospitals are included. Hospitals are usually funded by the public sector, by health organizations (for profit or non profit), health insurance companies, or charities, including direct charitable donations.
The number of hospitals and the number of patients they can hold offer insight into the state and capacity of the health and wellbeing sector in each city/state and territory. This data was collected in 2015-2016.
This FACT indicates the number of people who speak Spanish at home per 100,000 persons in each captial. Immigration from Latin America and Spain is less frequent than immigration from other European countries,and between the years of 2006 and 2011 Australia’s Latino and Spanish born population increased by 6.4 percent.
As per the 2016 Census, the city with the highest proportion of Spanish speakers is Sydney, at 1,167 per 100,000 persons. This is unsurprising, since the majority of Spanish and Latin American Australians reside in New South Wales. The city with the lowest number is Hobart, at 263 per 100,000 persons.
