This FACT indicates the household internet promise index for each Australian city. The promise value is the median ratio of the actual download speed compared to the download speeds that have been subscribed to by the consumer. This is important as it indicates whether the consumer is essentially “getting what they paid for”. Australia’s total promise index is 68 percent, as listed by the Ookla Net Index. We can compare this to New Zealand, the United States, and China who achieve promise indices of 90, 93, and 102 percent respectively, meaning many people in China experience download speeds that are above what they are subscribed to.
This FACT indicates the number of international airlines that fly in and out of each major Australian city airport, from the year 2018. The data for this indicator was found by looking for a list of international airlines on each of the major airport’s websites. According to the data, Sydney has the most international airlines passing through its airport at 50, a huge disparity from Hobart, the lowest at 1.
This FACT also appears in the Economy category.
This FACT indicates the number of people who speak Italian at home, per 100,000 persons, in Australian capital cities. Italians have a rich presence in Australia, with a large number of people identifying as Italian, or as being of Italian decent. Italian migration intensified following the Second World War, when Australia relaxed its migration policies in order to increase population numbers. Since then, Italian migration, alongside migration from other nations, has played an important role in forging the modern Australian identity.
Results from the 2016 Census show that the city with the highest proportion of Italian speakers is Melbourne, at 2,271 per 100,000 persons, followed closely by Adelaide at 2,130. The city with the lowest number is Hobart at 326 Italian speakers per 100,000 persons.
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.
Percentage of a city's population that have changed residencies within their state over 5 years until 2016
How frequently do people change their place of residence within the same state or territory? This FACT indicates the percentage of people within their greater city area that have moved from a residency within their state or territory, during the 5 years until 2016. Moving can often be tied to job opportunities or people moving from regions to their state capital. This FACT could be impacted by housing prices and cost of living, population growth or family formation. The city with the highest percent of residents that have moved within the same state or territory is Brisbane at 27.9 percent. The lowest is Canberra at 19.1 percent.
