This FACT indicates the number of live music attendances per capita, according to the Australasian Performing Right Association (APRA) as of 2014.
Live music and bar venues provide entertainment to audiences, but also a stage for the creative growth and development of a community, encouraging cultural and entertainment markets. New South Wales and Western Australia have the equal most attendances per capita, at 2.17. The state with the least is Tasmania with 1.84.
This FACT indicates the number of Australians who speak Vietnamese at home per 100,000 persons in each capital city. Vietnamese migration peaked from the 1970s to the 1980s, both during and following the Vietnam War, with almost all arrivals being refugees. Since the late 1980s, most Vietnamese migration is a result of reuniting families, under the Vietnamese Family Migration Program.
As a result of these migration waves, there is a strong Vietnamese culture in Australia, with large populations in Melbourne and Sydney in particular. 2016 Census results show that the city with the highest proportion of people who speak Vietnamese at home is Melbourne, at 2,260.5 per 100,000 persons. The city with the lowest number is Hobart, at 127.27 per 100,000 persons.
This FACT indicates the percentage of the population with both parents born in Australia for each capital city. The city with the most third and higher generation Australians, where first generation refers to naturalised citizens, is Hobart at 66.2 percent. According to the 2016 ABS Census results, the city with the lowest percentage of people with parents born in Australia is Sydney at 33.1 percent. Perth is close behind at 33.8 percent.
Traffic control fines are huge sources of income for state governments. In the year 2012/13, for example, the Adelaide City Council collected A$6 million in traffic-related fines alone. An expiation fine is issued when a motor vehicle excceds the specified time limit which has been allocated for a parking space.
This FACT indicates the cost of a standard expiation parking fine in each Australian city. The city with the highest parking fine is Canberra at $114. The city with the lowest fine is Hobart at $39.
This FACT indicates the total area in hectares that is used to grow vegetables for human consumption. The Australian vegetable production sector is an important source of food, supplying most of the fresh vegetables consumed in Australia. It also provides inputs for a large proportion of the processed vegetable products consumed in Australia and exported overseas. The state with the largest vegetable area for human consumption is Victoria at 33,824 hectares, closely followed by Queensland at 33,279 hectares. The state/territory with the lowest is the Australian Capital Territory, at just 6 hectares.
