Affectionately known as 'The Sunburnt Country', Australians are no stranger to dry climate and drought. Water conservation is a key environmental issue, with most states implementing water restrictions and conservation measures. In fact, between March 2012 and 2013, just under 80 percent of homes took at least one step to reduce their household's water consumption, with a common measure being to install water efficient shower heads, particularly for new houses.
This FACT indicates the percentage of households with water efficient shower heads in each state, according to the Australian Bureau of Statistics. Data for the Australian Capital Territory and Northern Territory could not be obtained.
