This FACT indicates the number of fire incidents responded to by fire fighters in each Australian state. Australia has a long history of bushfires, with frequent occurances each year along its hot and dry landscape. While many native flora are dependent on the regenerative nature of bushfires, there are tendencies for the spread to affect highly populated areas resided by the Australian people. Of course there are more frequent causes of fires within the CBD that need to be responded to by firefighters including car and house fires.
This FACT indicates the total number of deaths by overdose of narcotics and hallucinogens in each state as seen on the ABS website. These figures include deaths caused by the use of these substances in 2016, and could be either accidental or by the deliberate intent of the user. The state with the most deaths caused by drug overdose is New South Wales with 125. The state with the least is Tasmania with 3.
This FACT indicates the percentage of households using recycled or grey water in each Australian state. Grey water is the relatively clean wastewater from showers, baths, basins or washing machines, used for watering gardens. It cannot be stored, and is sorced directly from households, meaning that dwellings require grey water systems in place in order to use it. The data was collected from the Australian Bureau of Statistics in 2013. Statistics for the Australian Capital Territory and Northern Territory could not be obtained.
This FACT indicates the percentage of females in each state/territory who are obese.
Obesity is a medical condition in which excess body fat has accumulated to the extent that it may have an adverse effect on health, leading to reduced life expectancy and/or increased health problems. People are considered as obese, according to the Australian Bureau of Statistics, when their body mass index (BMI) (an individual's body mass divided by the square of his height) exceeds 30kg/m2 (BMI of 30.00).
Obesity is a real problem in Australia, which is ranked as one of the fattest nations in the developed world. According to Monash University research, the obesity rate has risen over 50 percent in the past 20 years.
The state with the highest population of obese females is South Australia at 31.5 percent. The state with the lowest is Western Australia at 24.2 percent.
