This FACT indicates the proportion of Australian Financial Review top 50 Australian sports earners in cities as a proportion of 100,000 people. The Australian Financial Review regularly compiles lists which rank corporations and individuals according to various criteria. Each year, the publication releases the richest people in Australia list, noting their professions. According to their 2017 list, the city with the highest number of top 50 sports earners per 100,000 people is Canberra with 1.530. The lowest is Darwin and Hobart with none.
Since the majority of Australians drive to work, the cost of petrol - or gasoline - is a hot topic. In Australia, petrol prices have risen significantly over the past few years, a factor that has contributed significantly to the cost of living for many. Petrol prices vary throughout the country, though, and some Australians are required to pay more per litre than their neighbours.
This FACT indicates the average price of regular unleaded petrol in each Australian state and territory. While ABS data is available on this topic, more recent data was sourced from the Australian Institute of Petroleum. According to their data, the state with the lowest average petrol price is South Australia at 126.9 cents per litre, while the most expensive is found in Tasmania, at 139.5 cents per litre. Data for ACT is combined with NSW petrol prices.
This FACT indicates the total number of cargo in tonnes that was imported to each Australian capital city port between the years 2015 to 2016. These number are represented in millions.
These numbers have an impact on infrastructure and government policy, as well as providing insight into the self-sustainability of each city. The city with the highest number of imports is Sydney - the most heavily populated state - at 20.4 million tonnes. The city with the lowest was Hobart, at 1.2 million tonnes. In this instance, Canberra has been omitted since it has no sea ports.
This FACT indicates the number of admissions from waiting lists for elective surgery in each state between 2016 and 2017. The values given are from a select group of hospitals from each state and do not represent the total number of admissions from every hospital in each state. Between 2008 and 2013, admissions from waiting lists increased in every state and territory except for Tasmania. The state/territory with the highest total admission is New South Wales, at 222,893. The state/territory with the lowest is the Northern Territory at 8,250.
Wealth distribution in Australia, as in all countries, is not equal. This FACT indicates the percentage of households with a gross weekly income less than $650 in each Australian city; a wage that is difficult to live on, given the relatively high cost of living in Australia. Data collected in the 2016 ABS Census reveals that the percentage of households with a gross weekly income less than $650 across Australia is 20.0 percent. The city with the highest percentage is Hobart with 23.0 percent, followed closely by Adelaide at 22.6 percent. The city with the lowest is tied between Darwin at 10.3 percent.
