Data confidence level: Rating_circle_solid  Rating_circle_solid  Rating_circle_solid  Rating_circle_solid  Rating_circle_solid  


This FACT indicates the percentage of family weekly income spent on rent. To achieve this percentage, the median family income of each city is divided by the respective median rent figure. The median has been utilised as it gives a more accurate reflection of the overall data set, as it is not impacted by outliers (or figures that lie far outside of the regular data range). According to the Census data (2016), the city with the highest percentage proportion of family income spent on rent is Sydney with 22.1 percent, followed closely by Brisbane with 19.5 percent. The city with the lowest percentage proportion is Canberra, with 15.6 percent.

Low is good
