This FACT indicates the number of people born into Generation Jones, between the years 1954 and 1965, per 100,000 in each city. This number represents Census results for 2016. 'Generation Jones' was a term coined by author Jonathan Pontell and refers to the generation that was born between 1957 and 1966. This period straddles both the Baby Boomer generation following WWII and the first wave of Generation X's. While the numbers are fairly even across the board, Hobart has the highest proportion of Generation Jones’, at 17,379 per 100,000 persons.
This FACT indicates the number of people who speak Spanish at home in each city. 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.
The city with the highest number is Sydney at 56,337 persons speaking Spanish at home. The city with the lowest number is Darwin, at 368 persons.
This FACT indicates the total number of high schools and primary schools (from reception to year 12, though not necessarily encompassing all school years) that are currently operating within each Australian capital from the year 2018. The numbers include both government schools and non-government schools. Using the Australian Schools Directory, we found the total number of schools in each city's greater area. Unsuprisingly, Sydney and Melbourne - the two largest cities - have the most schools, at 1488 and 1375 respectively. Each Australian State and Territory oversees its own education system, and as such there are small variations between each state and territory's systems.
Which Australian state/territory has the highest proportion of 18-24 year olds within the normal weight range? Obesity and being overweight is a serious health problem in Australia, which is classified as one of the fattest nations in the developed world. The phenomenon has been described as an 'epidemic' because of how quickly Australian waistlines have expanded and thereby increased the chance and frequency of weight-related illnesses, such as disease and diabetes. Having a Body Mass Index (BMI) of 25.00 and above is classified as overweight by the Australian Bureau of Statistics. This FACT indicates the proportion of people within a normal weight range between the ages of 18-24 (BMI of 24.99 and under).
According to statistics for the years 2014 to 2015, the state with the highest proportion of 18-24 year olds who weigh within the normal range is South Australia at 66.8 percent.
Research shows that penalties for speeding such as demerit points or cost can often be an effective tool in reducing the number of accidents on our roads. The 'Cameras Save Lives' campaign by the Victorian Government is typical of the rationale.
The cost of infringements is extremely high in most Australian cities, though some face more punitive fines than others. This FACT indicates the cost of a speeding fine in each Australian city when the speed of the vehicle exceeds to exactly 15 km/hr over the designated speed limit. Note: the fine is for cars and not necessarily heavy vehicles.
