Boundless Outlier?

A few of our friends have questioned whether the NT is simply an outlier in statistical terms. In other words there is nothing that anyone is doing or can do to change things.

Traffic Accident Hospitalisations per 100 000 registered vehicles

2015-16

NT 465 next highest 220 in ACT

Road Deaths per 100 000 registered vehicles

2016-17

NT 28.3 next highest 8.2 in WA

Expenditure on Dental Services 2015-16 (government and non-government)

NT 113 $ million next lowest Tas 171 $ million

The NT is at the bottom of every heap!
