AUSTRALIAN SOCIAL TRENDS
The publication shows that:
The Australian Capital Territory had the highest rates of concern about the environment and climate change. In the Australian Capital Territory, nine-tenths of adults (90%) were concerned about the environment and 81% of adults were concerned about climate change.
More adults in the Australian Capital Territory reported sorting out recyclable from non-recyclable waste than other states and territories. The Australian Capital Territory had the highest rates of recycling (93%) while the Northern Territory and Western Australia had the lowest (64% and 69% respectively).
The proportion of adults who felt unsafe when alone in certain situations was lower in the Australian Capital Territory (19%) than the national average (26%) and considerably lower than the proportion in the Northern Territory (35%) or Western Australia (31%).
MEASURES OF AUSTRALIA'S PROGRESS: REGIONAL DATA
Measures of Australia's Progress (cat. no. 1370.0) tries to answer the question: 'is life in Australia getting better?' The next edition is due for release on 15 September 2010 as a web based publication. There will be spreadsheets containing the data used in MAP available to download and for the headline indicators, state and territory data will also be available (where applicable). The publication will also include, for the first time, a slim-line brochure which highlights key information from MAP.
These documents will be presented in a new window.
