Territorians buck the trend on green issues
Territorians* seem to be less concerned than other Australians about many issues relating to the environment, according to the Australian Bureau of Statistics (ABS) new-look Regional Statistics, Northern Territory publication which was released today.
In 2007-08, Territorians were the least likely to report their personal water usage had decreased and the most likely to report increased water usage when compared to other Australians.
They were also the most likely Australians to cite cost saving as a reason for decreasing electricity use (40%, almost double the national average of 21%) and least likely to cite conserving energy as a reason (69% compared with 80% nationally).
Other highlights from this publication include:
Regional Statistics, Northern Territory (cat. no. 1362.7) is available for free download from the ABS website <www.abs.gov.au>. The next issue of the publication will be released in March 2010.
*Results for the Northern Territory exclude persons or dwellings in very remote areas.
